Context;

Time and Oral History

Location;

Capitol theatre, Melbourne

A cabinet of curiosities is made in response to the re-opening of The Capitol Theatre. Through studies of the oral history of the site, this project attempted to translate anecdotes and observations into transcriptions, experiments, situations and ephemera encounters. 
Specifically, the idea of time and displacement I explored through examining the relationship between people and their surroundings.

Technology used;

Site specific
Urban intervention

Light and mirror are used in a tactical way to reproduce and diffuse the repetitive expression of the ceiling and challenge our sense of movement in relation to the site. By bringing multiple images into one framework, the work allows new stories to emerge and encountered in time.

Working on site was extremely helpful for me, because I’m thinking to use the existing reflection as part of my model. I want to reinforce it because I really think the existing reflection not only speaks for the oral histories (the past) of the theatre but in a way, it also creating new memory of the space as people engage with it.
