Explore the State Library after dark and experience the iconic dome and facade transformed by illuminated projections and soundscapes.

Ideation

Artists: Nick Azidis, Lisa Greenaway , Adem Jaffers, Bentley Dean
Location: La Trobe Reading Room

Ideation is a spectacular celebration of the power of libraries to teach, inspire and grow. It celebrates and reviews aspects of the world’s achievements in knowledge.

Audiences will experience a multi-sensory world of interwoven soundscapes and illuminated projections that explore the idea of the library as a terrarium of the mind, an ecosystem of imagination.

Ideation is a collaboration among four Australian artists journeying into the human learning inputs of eyes and ears, exploring how new ideas and perspectives manifest, interrogating the very nature of knowledge.

Commissioned by State Library Victoria.

Landscaping architecture

Artists: Amanda Morgan, James HH Morgan, DJ JNETT
Location: State Library forecourt

Artist Amanda Morgan tips her creative cap to heritage and architecture in an immersive large-scale video installation on the Library facade and forecourt.

Activated with imagery from Amanda and photographer James HH Morgan, and music from DJ JNETT, one of Melbourne’s favourite meeting places will be transformed into a colourful playground or a contemplative resting place.

DJ JNETT live set 9–11pm.
