Jordana Maisie: CLOSE ENCOUNTERS Installation
June 2012, Federation Square, Melbourne
The Nelson Meers Foundation is supporting the exhibition of Jordana Maisie's "Close Encounters" installation at Federation Square in June 2012. "Close Encounters has been conceived to bridge the gap between the way art and music are experienced within Australian festival culture, bringing non-art specific communities together through their participation and interaction with the installation." - Jordana Maisie. Close Encounters is a large-scale (6.5m diameter) interactive sculpture, which takes the form of an unidentified flying object (UFO). The curved mirror surface reflects the world around it. The dramatic horizon; lined with trees, the sky and its uninterrupted vastness, as well as the visitors themselves, who love to pick their images out of the reflected crowd as they move under the sculpture.
