The installation and research development of a video exhibition system that attempts to overcome issues around the showing of video works, especially time-based works and those of a linear narrative, in public spaces and traditional galleries.

The viewer picks up the headphones to start the video and when they put down the headphones the video stops and resets itself.

This experimental system also has the ability to collect data on how many people have watched the video and at what point in time they decided to stop watching the video.

If you are an artist and have a video that you would like to see exhibited on this experimental video system you can submit an EOI here.

This project is a creative response to the recent past and the near future of Southbank, in light of the major redevelopment of the suburb and the arts precinct slated to begin in 2018. Considering the unique position of Testing Grounds – geographically at the furthest corner of the precinct and temporally as a short-term project – the banners shout a declaration of love and hope for the future of the suburb in which we sit.

The project is a collaboration between designer Andrew Clapham and Testing Grounds Operations Manager Trent Griffiths, born of conversations about the evolution of Testing Grounds, the history of the site sometimes sitting inside and sometimes outside of the arbitrary space known as the ‘Arts Precinct’, and the imminent redevelopment of Southbank.

Accompanying the banners is a Love Letter to Southbank – part poem, part plea…

NOW SEEKING APPLICATIONS

Testing Grounds will commission a series of banners from 2017-2019. Visible from City Road, Fanning Street and the Testing Grounds site and surrounds each banner commission will be raised for a maximum of three months and be exposed to thousands of people each week. Creative practitioners are commissioned to create printed designs, use them as a painterly canvas or create works of art using mixed media. Each commission can extend to include writing, performance or new media to incorporate innovative ideas into the banners.
