HYPNO by Mathew Dickson

MATT ep

Graduating from Central in 2013, Mathew Dickson’s multimedia practice is grounded in Bruno Latour’s scientific  theory of Blackboxing in which technology, through its  ongoing success, renders itself invisible.

Returning for a residency in July 2015, Mathew examines the symbiotic relationship between technology and the uncanny. Drawing upon parapsychology and everyday technological objects to inform his work, Mathew’s resulting installation summons technology to reveal its supernatural nature.

TESSELLATION STREET PROJECT by Trevor Richards

Tessellations_Street_Project_small
Perth Artist Trevor Richards has applied his striking designs to the windows of five old shopfronts on Beaufort Street between Aberdeen and Newcastle, adjacent to Central Institute.
 
The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority and Gallery Central have commissioned Richards to create a strip of geometric designs linking the spaces and enlivening the disused shops. Richards completed the first shop window in early 2013 with a design derived from a floor tile pattern discovered at the New Norcia Hotel, formerly a Benedictine Hostel.  All the designs are inspired by mosaic tile patterns from churches and other buildings around the world.
