Neon Parc (Brunswick)

Neon Parc has galleries in both Melbourne City and Brunswick.  I visited the Brunswick Gallery which has a solo exhibition of works by  Taree Mackenzie until 23 June 2018.  This is a big space that enables large installation works to be exhibited.

Taree Mackenzie – I loved these works (there are multiple).

So you stand before a shape suspended from a ceiling,  which is in front of a large, light box mounted on a wall, and both behind an an apparently clear glass screen.   It is three dimensional,  has motion and changes colour.  The fourth dimension is you – the mobile viewer.  The artwork changes based on where you stand in relation to the screens and the moving shapes.

I found myself wondering if I should remember something from school science / physics / chemistry to explain how this works?  No – too long ago.  Children will love it, adults  will love it and both will be asking – how did she do that?
