The Renewal SA temporary Creative Trail forms seven eye-catching installation pieces around the Festival Plaza redevelopment providing an opportunity for creative reflection, engaging experiences and connection throughout the many exciting changes happening along the Adelaide Riverbank.
Creative Trail installations are available to be viewed 24/7.
Please note some installations may require downtime for maintenance.
Seven different locations around the Adelaide Festival Plaza construction.
PARTICLE PLAY MASH DESIGN
Location: Adelaide Railway Station
Playing to their strength in art-disruption, local company Mash Design were engaged to create an interactive piece of installation art where you can physically engage with imagery on a large scale.
Bringing life to the Adelaide Railway Station, Particle Play gives you the opportunity to control and play with a huge interactive and ever moving canvas 10 metres wide by 2 metres high. Using LED screens combined with motion sensor technology, the LED wall recognises your movements. You can see your silhouette on screen moving in real time with your movements. Particle animation and floating balls add an extra element of interaction. Move, dance, have a hit of tennis… it’s all up to your imagination.
Go on, have a play…
POSTDIGITAL EPIPHYTE TOM BORGAS
Location: Temporary bridge outside the InterContinental Adelaide.
PostDigital Epiphyte brings to life the temporary bridge using colourful ropes, representing an eruption of the digital age as a physical growth over the surface of the bridge. Linking in with the natural green space of the Adelaide Riverbank, a palette of vine-like vectors weave their way through the mesh of the bridge.
VIEWFINDER MASH DESIGN
Location: Bottom on the temporary bridge near Dunstan Playhouse.
View 3D renders showing what the future Adelaide Festival Plaza redevelopment could look like when completed. An old school analogue viewfinder, with virtual reality technology brings a mix of old and new to see what tomorrow holds. To draw attention to the Viewfinder itself Mash created walls of beautifully crafted and complex geometric, eyeball bending artwork which is complemented by hand painted detail around the base of the viewfinder by Adelaide artist Lucas Croall.
ELECTRIC CANDY CANES – MAKE THEM SPIN MASH DESIGN
Location: Riverbank Footbridge near Dunstan Playhouse.
Electric Candy Canes is a physical interaction between art and you. Best viewed at night, the five spinning rods are controlled by your movement. It’s almost like the rods are alive and responding – imitating your movements. During the day the lights imitate the sparkle of the sun on the surface of the River Torrens.
At night you can control the glow, colour and movement of the lights, this is the eye candy fun factor.
Go ahead and make them spin…
SHARE YOUR ADELAIDE RIVERBANK ADELAIDIANS
Location: Along the Riverbank near the Dunstan Playhouse stairs.
With so many things to see and do along the Adelaide Riverbank we love seeing what you get up to. Adelaide has so many fantastic amateur photographers that share their work on social media that we wanted to bring the creative trail into the digital world. Each month an Adeladian will have their photo of the Adelaide Riverbank featured on the Creative Trail, bringing you different views from talented locals.
RIVER REFLECTIONS MASH DESIGN
Location: On the pathway through Elder Park.
A moving spectrum of blues, where it seems as if the panels transform as you change the direction the wall is viewed. The checkers of blue change from light blue to dark, imitating the sparkle of the sun on the surface of the River Torrens.
