No News is Good News, 2021

Artwork: Andy Hutson
Concept: Audience members throw a tennis ball into a colourful, carboard spinning vortex. An array of moving sculptures conveys words and phrases from the media cycle and social media acronyms. As each ball passes up the spinning column into the mechanical sculptures above, the path it traces as it descends creates a unique ‘concrete poem’ of life in the Covid era. 

Credits:
Kinetic installation at the old K&D Warehouse, Hobart.

Exhibited as part of No Place Like Home, curated by Emma Pike. MonaFoma, January 2021

Production assistant: Corey Mahar

Details:
A single-take film, shot on a Canon 7D using a custom-made 3 metre long camera boom and dolly.

The set was constructed entirely of materials and debris found in my studio.
