Go on DO IT: Things to think about in public (art)

Join Jordana Maisie, feature artist for this year’s Light in Winter festival, in a two-day workshop focusing on installation art.

Jordana will start the two-day workshop with an artist’s talk on site-specific and public art, followed by a workshop session in the afternoon, where participants will carry out a thorough site analysis of Fed Square as a hypothetical installation site.

The second day of the workshop will kick off with a session called ‘Design Charette’. The term ‘charette’ refers to an intense period of work by one person or a group of people to resolve conflicts and map solutions prior to a deadline. Groups will be working together to develop site-specific installation project ideas.

The event will culminate in a final session where groups and individuals will present their ideas and receive feedback.

Jordana Maisie creates work that supports a visceral and fluid audience experience by responding to the space in which they are installed. She has exhibited in galleries and festivals throughout Australia, Europe and South Korea.

This workshop is presented by Light in Winter – www.fedsquare.com/thelightinwinter.
