Spring is a Thing!
The sun is shining, the skies are blue, flowers are blooming, and so too can you!
We’ve finally thrown off (most) of the shackles of winter, and as overgrown metaphors of sprouting and new life saturate our visual allegories, you too can celebrate with the birds and bees in this interactive art installation. Poke fun at the spring fashion extravaganza by dressing up in hilarious hats and silly spring coats provided, and spread a giggle through the CoCreate crowd. For a small donation towards film costs have your Polaroid taken against a unique spring backdrop painted by four amazing Adelaide artists and commemorate your CoCreate-d community experience!
Featuring artwork by Kat Coppock, Tiff Hampton, Andrew Humphries, and Sarie Tardiff.
The Colour Tree
Christiana Griffith and Kat Coppock
The Colour Tree uses sculptural and art therapy techniques to encourage you to bring awareness to your emotions and allow your colours to express how you feel so that you may share it and in turn be a part of the collaboration process at the CoCreate festival. Hanging upside down the of a geodesic dome, the tree upturns your perceptions and challenges your world view to promote open mindedness and a fresh look at the community around you. Participants are encouraged to react to their surroundings by tying coloured ribbons indicative of their emotions to the branches of the hanging tree, coming together to create lush foliage representative of the growth of arts and culture within our temporary spaces.
The frosted glass doors explore how our perceptions are subtlety blurred through daily exposure to media, drugs, medication, friends, family, religion, politics etc disconnects us from ourselves, others ; leaving us to believe empowerment and the truth to who we are and the world we live in lay in other peoples hands. The goal is to walk out from behind the frosted glass to see life more clearly.
