UNSW switches on at Vivid Sydney
- Posted: 25th May 2012
A unique outdoor art projection developed at UNSW will light up this week as part of the Vivid festival.
PhD student Katy Alexander’s work Alter Ego, combines large-format screen projection, live performance and sound.
Alter Ego is an exploration of “confronting our own reflection, our alter ego”, explains Alexander, who has collaborated with a video artist, choreographer, composer and six performers to create the new media theatrical production, playing at Walsh Bay.
Incorporating Alexander’s love of theatre, it is the only installation to use live performers.
Alexander’s inspiration for Alter Ego was ignited by her PhD research on theatre and new media, in the School of the Arts and Media.
“Undertaking a PhD has really pushed my creative ideas, it’s very satisfying to see Alter Ego come to life,” she says.
