13. Marita Batna & Michael Morgan: Sensory Portal 2 - Turbulence

  • City Hall Forecourt 57 Little Malop Street Geelong, VIC, 3220 Australia (map)

The Sensory Portals are new intimate spaces for you to experience multi-sensory artistic encounters.

Funded by the Arts & Culture Department of the City of Greater Geelong and Creative Victoria. The conceptualisation, architectural design and siting composition of the Sensory Portals has been a collaborative work of Geelong-based artist Don Walters and architectural academic Mirjana Lozanovska and architect Stewart Seaton from the School of Architecture and Built Environment, Deakin University. 

The portals have been constructed with a view to being used by the wider community post Geelong After Dark. For GAD 2019 various artists have been invited to activate the three portals to create unique and intimate experiences. 

Turbulence is a move-through installation, this Sensory Portal activates above and below to portray and connect with a sense of turbulence. The structure of video projection, sound and vapour is an observation of modes for fragmenting and enclosing ambient and fluid forms of nature to transmit their underlying force.
