White Night once again showed off the best of Melbourne’s talent to create an atmosphere of art and culture across the CBD.
RMIT’s School of Art took part for the second time with its city campus becoming a hub of light boxes, projections and its Alumni courtyard showing a sea of purple rain by French artist Pierre Ardouvi.
Up to 550,000 people filled Melbourne's streets for the city's second annual all-night White Night cultural festival, according to organisers.
Across four sites at RMIT, students, candidates and staff created a series of artworks that perforated the university’s city campus with light.
In Swanston Street, Building 10 shed its skin. Around the the corner at La Trobe Street a sequence of five video work prod, provoked and animated the windows at street level. High on the wall in Rodda Lane, a series of lightboxes lead you into the labyrinthine alleys of RMIT’s idiosyncratic architecture to three installations.
Opening out into a courtyard of respite, a scrolling landscape and rotating, morphing and absorbing forms punctuated a glass façade. A sound and light work in a basement in Bowen Street invited and excluded participation in this event.
RMIT will look at participating in White Night for 2015, again with students, staff and graduates being involved.
