Victor Harbor Digital Art Projector
In 2016 Victor Harbor installed South Australia’s first permanent architectural projection system with the expertise of illuminart and Mosaic AV, which illuminates digital art pieces on to the historic facade of the art deco Victa Cinema.
As Victor Harbor has a close relationship with whales, primarily Southern Right whales, also Blue Whales, Humpbacks, Sperm Whales and Orca are known to visit the Harbor annually to give birth, and are central to the town’s tourist industry, illuminart was commissioned to create the first digital art piece around the whale theme.
The result......a stunning, colourful and mesmorising piece called 'Cosmic Whale Song'.
As illuminart describes it....."In a seamless shift of context and location, atmospheric effervescence and covert costume changes, the whales in familiar waters appear to evolve into cosmic space-whales blazing through the stars in a psychedelic swirl of mind bending majesty!"
The second piece 'The Ripple Effect' was created by local artist Margaret Worth.
"I am interested in energy - from gravitational waves through the cosmos to the micro vibrations in nerve endings through the body. For the project I wanted to give shape to the energies of this place, my home - Victor Harbor. By sharing the work, I believe it will connect with people, and become a ripple of energy that makes life more interesting." says Margaret in describing her work.

The public are invited to watch the different digital art pieces that are on show every night after the sun goes down.
