I’m a huge fan of automating processes with computers and hardware.
This month I had the absolute pleasure of working with two very talented Australian artists/curators (Judith Torzillo and Victoria Cleland) at the Melbourne City Library. It’s a pretty cool library that’s hidden on Flinders lane and hosts facilities to an eclectic group of people: locals, travelers, students, and creatives.
Judith Torzillo and Victoria Cleland have transformed the City library’s exhibition space with “Without a Jewel” videos, audio, books and paper.
Without A Jewel presents four artists currently exploring the edges of jewellery: Renée Ugazio (Australia), Anneleen Swillen (Belgium), Paulina Rodete (Mexico) and Zoe Robertson (UK)
RTR Productions helped Judith and Victoria with the Video and Audio Integration work which was fairly straight forward using Samsung professional screens and Brightsign media players. Where things got a little clever was the automation of content with scheduled playout. All of the video and audio equipment was automated with on and off times that was in sync with the library opening times. The system has been fully automated since August 2nd with no human intervention. The Exhibition closes this Sunday 3rd September, it’s free and I highly recommend a visit.
