The Melbourne International Comedy Festival kicked off tonight and as the temperature dropped I walked to Trades Hall in somber mood (after a very tragic incident on Swanston St today)
It was good to catch up with one of my taller siblings who has created a perpetual animated projection based on the Comedy Festival Colours. There’s an algorithm involved in generating a digital painting with a revolving colour wheel selecting the colours and another rotating jiggamy selecting the dot size and shape.
OK – I don’t really understand it but it’s superbly calming. Interspersed are some Eugene von Guérard works wandering over the brick surface and occasionally illuminating a window like a glimpse of imagined rural landscape.
