Sydney Festival, Sydney, Australia, 2003


Urban Tide involved the virtual immersion of the foyers of three major bank buildings in Sydney’s Martin Place as part of the 2003 Sydney Festival.Viewed through the glass surfaces of windows and doors, the foyers appeared to slowly fill with water, with fish and crustaceans interacting with the building and furniture. In a one-hour loop repeated 9pm-1am, 13 synchronised DVD projections are rear projected onto the glass surfaces of the buildings, commencing with the foyers empty, slowly filling and finally draining.
