Mountain to Mouth @ Geelong After Dark Constellation - River of Words
Matt Bonner and Esther Konings-Oakes
Viewers will be met by books illuminated and arranged to form pathways on the sidewalk. Positioned among the books will be desks where people can participate by writing their vision of the future. The foyer of city hall will be transformed into a blackened space where a projected river of words gleaned from Geelong constituents will use text to illuminate the void and create an enchanting riverscape of possibility.
