The Garage International @ Adelaide Town Hall, Fri 26 Feb
Light-painting artist and photographer Vicki Ferguson (Vix) once again enlightens the Adelaide Fringe with her unique and interesting style of art/photography. With the use of a camera set on long exposure, large projection screens, torches, tough cellophane (known as gels in the lightpainting scene), a lightsabre, sparklers and fire, Ferguson creates majestic and interesting imagery right before our eyes.
Of course, until the image is shown on the large projection screens we could only imagine what the final product would look like. The audience was thrilled with the display of the final images that produced beautiful pictures from all the light, sparkler and fire blurs seen running across the stage during the making.
Selected willing audience members were invited up on stage to pose and become part of the art, being surrounded by the light blurs Ferguson was energetically creating around them. All of the unique photographs created can be found on the shows Facebook page which Ferguson encourages participants to tag themselves in.
Throughout the show, Paul Danger McLean compliments Ferguson with soothing, almost mediative music and sounds created using his electronic guitar and EBow, plus the magical sounds of a Theremin.
To complete the glow of the hour, Ferguson ‘paints’ beautiful scenes and images on a large luminous canvas using only torch light. No sooner than the images appear, they fade but Ferguson quickly produces new ‘paintings’ in their place. With a little imagination and a whole lot of torch light, anything is possible.
Light. Camera. Action: The Live Lightpainting Experience continues at The Garage International @ Adelaide Town Hall until Wed 2 Mar.
