For those of you who live Northside will be familiar with Abyss 607 and his work, with his unmistakable style adorning Melbourne’s walls, doors , footpaths and even trackside, his work is everywhere. If I can use one word to sum up his show it would be “WOW”, I was super impressed and surprised to say the least, well done Abyss 607, the exhibition space had a serious case of the measles, virtually every piece had a red sold sticker on it. For those of you who could not make it, here are a bunch of pics I took.

Submissions Wanted – Yo Gobo – Electro & Stencil Light Exhibition – Melbourne

We love anything to do with technology, and we love emerging new forms of artistic practice – and this is no exception. Those of you who have seen stuff including the recent White Night event that was on in Melbourne know the power of projection and the potential inherent in this form of "Street art".

Now, Electrolight are teaming up with Fed Square, and they’re looking for people to get involved in their next big project "The Light In Winter" – budding eletroc light artists, this is your call out …

"Electrolight, in association with Fed Square is excited to announce a joint initiative for The Light in Winter 2013.

‘Yo Gobo’ will see a selection of designs realised as unique gobos and displayed in a public art projection in St Paul’s Court, Fed Square over the Winter Solstice celebrations from 20th to 23rd of June. All entries received will be displayed on Fed Square’s Big Screen on the evening of 20th June during the Solstice Weekend.

‘Yo Gobo’ will be a prominent, active part of The Light in Winter and a highly visible attraction at Fed Square for it’s duration.

Submission are now open. Check out the Yo Gobo EOI and get involved…."

Heres a small run down on whats involved – check out the info PDF here.

"The Light in Winter at Fed Square is entering its 7th year and again plans to bring together communities, artists and designers from many backgrounds to explore and creatively realise ideas about light. The central theme for the 2013 festival is to connect light and the power of voice – its physical power, its power of communication, its democratic power and its power to uplift and heal.

The Light in Winter is produced by Fed Square Pty Ltd and directed by Robyn Archer, one of Australia’s most beloved and successful artists. The burgeoning program is now a high-profile annual event in Melbourne, and has national and international recognition.

In 2013 the program will see all activities, workshops, performances and displays anchored around a key installation by artist Bruce Ramus. The commissioned piece is called the Helix Tree, a 13m-high light sculpture equipped with advanced sound and light technology which means it can be activated by sound and voice.

‘Yo Gobo’ will see a selection of designs realised as unique gobos and displayed in a public art projection in St Paul’s Court, Fed Square over the Winter Solstice celebrations from 20th to 23rd of June.  All entries received will be displayed on Fed Square’s Big Screen on the evening of 20th June during the Winter Solstice Weekend.

‘Yo Gobo’ will be a prominent, active part of The Light in Winter and a highly visible attraction at Fed Square for it’s duration.

WHAT’S A GOBO?

A gobo is a metal disk with holes cut into it, through which light passes to create a desired shape or pattern. In effect, it enables stencil art to be created with light.

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

Designers (of all disciplines), architects, design enthusiasts, individuals, companies and collectives, from Australia and around the world, are invited to submit images/gobo designs for inclusion in the project.

All complying designs will be displayed on the evening of Thursday, 20th of June. A selection of entries will be cut in to steel gobos and displayed on the facade of Fed Square’s E-Shard Building (Flinders St) from the 20th to 23rd of June.

If you are interested in participating you will need to complete the Submission process "
