Join artist Sebastian Moody as he discusses his practice and newly-commissioned temporary public artwork, Seeing.
Moody’s work is the inaugural IMA Belltower Façade Projection, visible after dark on the façade of the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts. Somewhere between a list and poem, Seeing is comprised entirely of six letter words intended to create moments of contemplation on Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley.
Moody will be joined by his collaborator, designer Sai Karlen, who will discuss the process of working together to animate and bring to life this kinetic typography projection.
Don’t miss your chance to hear about Moody’s practice, which often engages with busy urban environments, as well as the technical process of this unique collaboration.

Memorable as mantras or philosophical propositions, they offer moments of pause and contemplation. He is represented by Onespace Gallery, Brisbane
