Faces were lit up at the inaugural Limelight event at last week. Local creatives transformed Gateway Island with their interactive artworks combining science, art and light. Artworks included a metal sculptured phoenix complete with fire by Michael Laubil, projections on various surfaces by Tracie McVean and Greg Pritchard and a 360 projection featuring the Endangered Pygmy Perch with illustration by Kirrily Anderson, animation by Helen Newman and projection mapping by Adam Boon.
Audience moved around & through the artworks and many faces were aglow with wonder! With the Murray River adjacent to the event and the towering ancient redgums it was the ideal location for the events debut.
Even real life Pygmy Perch were in attendance at the Sustainable Activity Centre escorted by NSW Fisheries Officer Luke Pearce!
Congratulations to Murray Arts, the artists, volunteers and all involved with the event. It was an absolute pleasure to provide professional event photography services for you and I can’t wait to see next year’s event!
