DIGITAL LANDSCAPES / Laura Wills and Rosina Possingham
Digital Landscapes explores the potential of user-friendly, COVID safe digital technologies that encourage new ways of thinking and working with diverse individuals, voices and approaches. The vector-based technology offers an unprecedented ability to seamlessly create layered works using images, drawings, texts, GPS and reference maps, zoom in to detail and then expand and print in large-scale formats without any loss. This shift in access to such user-friendly mobile technologies with high-end outcomes supports the potential of community-based processes between artist and non-artists to greater levels of professional production and creative capacity.
Over 2021 and beyond a series of remotely accessible workshops and site-based participatory public art outcomes will take place initially as part of the 2021 Nature Festival, Adelaide Park Lands and The Pinnaroo Project, a long-term art and health initiative partnership project in Pinnaroo.
Digital Landscapes is an artistic collaboration between two established artists and OSCA. This project supports the significant development of a new model of artistic collaboration for OSCA that harnesses the democratic space of the digital world and brings it to the space of site-based participatory art practice.
Laura Wills works across the discipline of drawing through paint, mapping, installation, and projected light drawing for live performances.
Rosina Possingham is a multi-disciplinary artist, designer and photographer creating large-scale drawings and maps through the extensive use of digital and software programs.
This project is supported by The Government of SA Arts Recovery Fund as part of the OSCA Digital Landscapes initiative.
