The Open Space Vertical Gallery project space presents Translation, an experimental immersive video installation by emerging artists Laura Rechwan,Nathaniel Churchill, Tai Dunkley-Whelon 

To make a sound is to alter your environment.

Translation explores ideas of macro-micro and locale can be expressed through sound and video projection. How does the impact of our voices affect the space around us, as well as the consciousness of the viewer?

The parallel dynamics between the fluidity of sound and water are traversed through a phonic five-hour group journey along the coastline of Victoria, followed by experimental instrument and vocal recordings.

Artists’ biographies:

Our collective formed around a shared interest in artistic and metaphysical concepts. We have developed a working process that engages how we affect our environment and explore the landscape of our emotional psyches through collective experience and shared memory. We use an interdisciplinary approach to experiment with a vast range of media.

Nathaniel Churchill is exploring a variety of mediums, interweaving influences of dance, performance, music, rhythm, and movement into his work. With a primary focus on process, repetition of movement and the energies, connections, and experiences it brings forth.

Tai Dunkley-Whelon’s explorations in animation, video/sound, painting, ceramics and installation are process based and examine many different characters. Observed and personal interactions act as starting points for investigation into states of mind.

Laura Rechwan’s fascination with human connection and shared experience are often her inspirations. She is a multi-disciplinary artist working with concepts combining physical reality with tangible surrounding energies, most often executing these concepts through immersive.
