For one night only, 14 students from the Queensland College of Art and Queensland Conservatorium bring the environment and culture of Stradbroke Island to life through art and sound, projection and light.
Beach holidays, camping expeditions and fishing trips to Straddie are part and parcel of Queenslander life, but how much does the average person know about the social, environmental and historical issues facing the island community? As part of an art and sound infield course, the students spent five days immersed in bush and beach life, engaging with the local community, Indigenous elders and environmental scientists. Their cumulative knowledge and shared experiences from the island became Float, a rich collection of images and soundscapes that beautifully capture the breadth of this iconic Queensland landscape.
Float exhibits on the Turbine Platform at Brisbane Powerhouse from 6pm to 8pm, 14 October.
