Introduced Species 360

with
Sydney Symphony Orchestra
MyPL:
Virtual Excursion:

What happens when the man-made enters the natural landscape? What will happen to these pristine environments?

Composer Katy Abbott, uses the true events of a cargo ship in 1992 spilling nearly 29,000 duck bath toys into the North Pacific Ocean as the catalyst for her work: Introduced Species.

Six 360 cameras were embedded into the Sydney Symphony Orchestra's performance of Introduced Species to give the viewer a unique and immersive experience of the performance.

Your Public Art Project

with
MyPL:
Virtual Excursion:

What is public art? How can it transform our local environment? Primary and secondary students from across NSW worked with Kaldor Public Art Projects to reimagine public spaces within their local communities. This eResource, explores the school’s work using innovative technology to bring site specific works  alive through 360 Virtual Reality film and 3D photogrammetry models. As well as reimagining Your Public Art Project submissions created by the five schools (Bourke Public School, Wilcannia Central School, Dulwich High School of Visual Arts and Design, Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School and St Clair High School), STEM students from Merryland’s High school designed an app, which also houses the works and takes the viewer on an immersive VR experience.
