Chinese Whispers

Castlemaine State Festival : 2007

Installation in New China Restaurant,Castlmaine. Collaboration between Tara Gilbee and Andrew Goodman.

This art work was composed of digital stills on transperant film, light boxes, paper leaves and surround sound. The work emulated an asian pagoda and worked with the idea of rumour mills and secretative conversations, furtive sound bites in small towns.

Utilising inspiration from the decor and site the work created a small installation which was a new custom within the restaurant for two weeks. The audience to this work where a broad range of people, from the elderly who had a regular table at the front of the restaurant, to children who ran around the work exclaiming "its alive in there".
