Acknowledgement of Country

Sandpit respectfully works across the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, as well as the Kaurna and Yugambeh peoples. We recognise and respect their continued cultural, spiritual and technological practices.

We also extend this to all First Nations peoples across the land known as Australia and pay respects to their Ancestors and Elders past and present.

As the very first storytellers and technologists, First Nations peoples possess invaluable knowledge and perspectives that are crucial to the work that we do across both the physical and digital realms.

Clarice Beckett—Atmosphere

Clarice Beckett—Atmosphere

A projection experience in the Clarice Beckett retrospective at Geelong Gallery that allows visitors to see a place special to them as Beckett would have painted it. 

Sandpit worked with Geelong Gallery to create a stand alone experience that concludes the Clarice Beckett exhibition ‘Atmospheres’.

Visitors are asked to select from three painting styles from Beckett’s iconic oeuvre and then enter the street address of a location that has special meaning to them. Using google street view, the projection mapped walls transform, bringing their special place to life, filtered through Becketts signature style.

The experience is designed to be an ephemeral moment that contextualises the exhibition visitors have just walked through, and brings it home on a personal level.

Beckett was a Victorian painter working in the early 20th Century, renowned for her nuanced, emotive portraits of the Melbourne and greater Victoria area. Largely overlooked during her lifetime, she is now considered one of Australia’s greatest artists.
