In association with Melbourne Festival and Monash University, Under the Wire Projections and Sounds was a free public event of moving images and music, curated by James Hewison, Head of Film Programs at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI).
As part of an addition to the projections and sounds, we popped up a Hub and curated a pulsating program of live music, in a local line of of new comers Alice Ivy, SAATSUMA, OCDANTAR and Mona Gene.
With a theme of construction to de-construction in various forms, we took advantage of the collision of architectural style of the site, dropped in some shipping containers which were skinned and transformed into Bar/Food for the delicious flavours of MJR Tom, added some kick ass screens and speakers, together with some wild LED panels, built some wire structures and plonked ourselves amongst the undergoing construction at the Campus, which subsequently formed a stage and the backdrop for a series of projections and sound.
The film program featured the likes of Amiel Courtin-Wilson, surprising documentary filmmaker; Rick Charnoski, a master of the Super 8mm; and the poet of cinematic decay, Bill Morrison. A successful inaugural event for our friends at Monash and Melbourne Festival!
