Experimenta-"Utopia Now" 2010

Experimenta are once again exhibiting their "International biennial of media art" at the Black box  at the Melbourne arts centre. This is the 4th time we have been contracted to fit out the black box for this event so we are pretty familiar with the space. This particular exhibition required lots of rooms with all the walls extending up to the grid at 3.3 metres high. 
It all had to be pre-fabricated and then set up in 3 days at the art centre. This meant building over 200 modular wall sections at the workshop and then trucking the pieces to location. The boys freaked out when they saw how much wood was being delivered.  I will post some shots of the finished interior shortly.

Medibank TVC-Sydney

We reconditioned the "Medibank" letters , sourced props in Melbourne and trucked the whole lot up to Sydney. It has been 10 years since i have done the Hume so i was looking forward to the road trip. It was going to be a 3 day shoot at "freshwater Bay" but the weather didn't do us any favors and so we ended up staying a couple of days longer. This meant lugging all the gear up and down the beach each day which was all very exhausting but there are certainly worse places to be hanging out.
