The night will feature a preview of 'Beeyali' - a new projection work developed by Lyndon Davis in collaboration with Leah Barclay and Tricia King at USC.
Beeyali was awarded the 2021 New Light commission from the Australian Network for Art and Technology (ANAT) and premiered at Illuminate Adelaide in association with Adelaide Festival Centre’s Moving Image program.
Beeyali is a Kabi Kabi word meaning ‘to call’. This project visualises the calls of wildlife on Kabi Kabi Country using cymatics, the science of visualising acoustic energy or sound. Beeyali involved a series of experiments using new technologies and different environmental materials to reveal cymatics, including ochre, water and digital photography. This project provides new ways to connect to the environment and discover connections between Indigenous knowledge, science, emerging technology and design.
