  • Roundtable: SITEWORKS: Ecologies and Technologies

    We created two artworks for Siteworks 2012, using video projection and animation to respond to the unique Bundanon environment and architecture. The Archive & Study Centre is a large old shed the Trust architects sensitively converted, cladding the shed in a way that leaves its perimeter of massive posts exposed. We brought these massive tree trunks back to life by projecting an animated drawing of trees over the building. The Verdant Shed refers to the ancient practice of building sacred structures and meeting places from living trees and also the current organic architecture trend to incorporate living trees into modern building designs.
