Neil WALK 1

Cye walk 2

Cye Wood returns for a second and more detailed set of walks and sound experiments in the city. We discuss his approach of improvisation as a process of musical composition and a way to create a shared empathetic experiences between performer and observer within public spaces.

Ceri walk

The next artist walk was a nocturnal adventure in the city with Ceri Hann, exploring zones for ‘Lightjacking’. This is a process where you hijack an existing light in the city – like as a building spotlight or uplight – and harness it’s light for your own projection purposes using mirrors, lenses and overhead plastic.

Map making

Creating a base map of Melbourne to use for the project became a critical requirement. Using A2 drafting film, Letra-tone, a knife and a light box, the map was hand assembled by compiling of two enlarged maps – one: a basic tourist map of Melbourne; and the other: Map #1 of the Melways for detail.

Cye Walk 1

The first city walk was with composer and violinist, Cye Wood. We spent a few hours seeking out resonate acoustic spaces across the city. The Arts Centre under croft as a possible location. As we were discussing how this space might work, a near-by jogger paused for a moment then burst into a perfect aria for five minutes, then continued on his run. Absolute synchronisity!

mark up the city 2007

This is where the project began – on a summers day, walking through the city with a piece of chalk in hand. Observing and imagining the creative potential that the city offered and marking up it’s surfaces as if it was 1:1 architectural drawing.

Inspired by Arthur Stance who marked up the streets of Sydney with the word ‘Eternity’.
