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.
