This projection artwork was produced with the kind support of Sahn Kramer at Geelong City Council and the stupendously talented Olaf Meyer. Only my third projection work, it was designed as a celebration of Aboriginal Elders from Geelong, and around Victoria. It begins with a design that represents a forest, marked with a traditional carving on one of the trees. Leaves are falling, and this represents our families and those who have come before us, and are no longer with us. This is followed by a rotoscoped design, showing my grandfather, Jack Patten (1905-1957). He then introduces the next scene, showing the Rainbow Serpent, carving its way through the universe, and then set against transitioning geometric shapes, taken from traditional Koori designs found on shields, boomerangs, and other artifacts. Eventually, we then meet with Elders faces, placed against the stars, and highlighted in neon. Mid way through this cycle is also a time-lapse animation of an artwork which further reinforces the family metaphor, using a growing web in order to do so. The Elders then roll out, leaving us with a kaleidoscope form of an earlier artwork, and we fade to black. The colours in the work are deliberately bright and playful. I design these projection works to appeal to children and their families, and to also highlight that Aboriginal art isn’t locked in time; that we aren’t just required to be who we are sometimes stereotypically imagined to be. We are so much more.
