Description

Design on Show: Immersive Media

In partnership with The Surry Hills Creative Precinct, join creative duo Sarah Barns and Michael Killalea of Esem Projects in a talk and Q&A.

As part of the library’s Design on Show series, our experts examine the design philosophy governing their practise of connecting story, people and place in a device-saturated world. Sarah and Michael also discuss the joys and roadblocks of working with site-specific media.

Sarah Barns and Michael Killalea - Esem Projects

As the duo behind this experiential media and design practice, Sarah and Michael deliver a diverse range of projects and platforms. Stemming from a passion for rare film archives, urban history and creative lighting, these two are pushing boundaries. From permanent museum installations to temporary events and public art commissions, they transform spaces and narrative.

Esem Projects were lead designers and curators for the redevelopment of the Rutherford's Den interactive science museum based in Christchurch, New Zealand. They were also joint winners of the National Trust ACT Heritage Awards 2015 for their audio-visual interpretation of the Mt. Stromlo Observatory in Canberra.

The Surry Hills Creative Precinct

This non-profit organisation seeks to establish Surry Hills as a creative cluster and cultural hub. A rich collective bringing the community’s vitality into focus with a view to supporting projects which frame the area as a destination for outstanding design.

This is a free series however bookings are essential.
