Fluid data

FLUIDATA is an immersive experiential installation with durational performances by Igneous, a Brisbane-based inter-media and performance company. The work explores questions around the state of Queensland creeks, the ways in which digital media can help connect audiences with the natural environment and anecdotes about local waterways.

For the development of this interactive installation, Igneous artists James Cunningham and Suzon Fuks drove 7,000 km, crossed 663 waterways and slowly, quietly walked down two dozen creeks throughout Queensland recording imagery, sound and data files.

OPENING 13 June at 6pm, with performance at 7pm, live streamed here:

exist@Metro 2014 Eleanor Jackson ‘Social Climbing’ – Press Release

May 11, 2015 Leave a comment

As a part of Metro Arts’ new Friday Night event series, exist is excited to be programming a series of works in progress from contemporary live artists.

SOCIAL CLIMBING is a new work in progress by Eleanor Jackson, programmed as a part of exist@Metro Arts. Tactile and tender, SOCIAL CLIMBING explores the quality of demonstrative closeness. Situated in the Metro Arts stairwell, SOCIAL CLIMBING begins with the simple act of holding hands and walking upstairs.

Eleanor Jackson is a queer, Filipina-Australian whose narrative-based work engages with

love and loss relayed in intimate performance settings. Following on from previous experiences in smaller, closed settings at Metro Arts, ‘A Timely Act of Intimacy’ and ‘Now You See Me’, SOCIAL CLIMBING experiments with intimacy in the public realm.

Eleanor is presenting a development of a performance piece for EXIST-ENCE 6 International Festival of Live Art, Performance Art and Action Art.

Metro Arts Friday Nights showcase work in development; rough, ready, and full of potential. Step into studios and rehearsals – see the unseen; give feedback on new ideas; have a glass of wine with Brisbane’s premier artists.
