Space Pixels is an interactive light installation, made of mirrored stainless steel and intelligent pixels. The shapes and patterns are formed through reflections, changes in light, colour and intensity.

The installation, created by Nathan Street, explores methods for creating volumetric displays, using techniques found in kaleidoscopes. Multiple three-sided mirror kaleidoscopes allow the image to be viewed from multiple angles, creating the illusion of transparency and volume.

Microphones capture transient sound near the work that influence the patterns and intensity of the light. This allows the work to respond to the environment and be explored in playful ways.

Space Pixels is inspired by Atari 2600 computer games. Games like Space Invaders and Asteroids use simple animation techniques to create staggered movement as objects move around the screen, with coloured pixel explosions when asteroids are destroyed.

The Brisbane Virtual Reality Club Meetup is a fun way to connect with like-minded people and experience the re-emerging medium of Virtual Reality.

The Brisbane VR Club is a place for VR enthusiasts of all levels (whether beginner or seasoned developer) to connect, collaborate and construct VR experiences.

The club is growing in size with monthly meetups for anyone who is interested in this space. There’ll be industry speakers presenting their latest ideas and works, and the chance to develop and experience new VR work.

The Brisbane VR Club’s mission is to provide an international network of support and education for local VR developers who are excited about creating great content.

The body is a canvas in this colourful free event pushing the boundaries of live sculpture and body art. 

Over four hours, Brisbane’s best body painters create a spectacular work of art using the body as their canvass and Brisbane Powerhouse as their muse.

Take a look between shows or sit down and enjoy the skill of these artists over a drink and something to eat. More than just moveable art, Body Art on the Deck takes performance art to inspiring heights.

This event only takes place on Saturday 24th November and Friday 30th November, starting at 6:00pm and going for four hours.
