HOME Alice Springs

Last night’s public showing of the new work HOME (Alice Springs) was a big success with over 50 people stopping to watch the full projection.

Below is a series of images taken on the night. Being in a prominent and at times controversial part of the city, the huge faces sparked a lot of interest from passers-by.

Is Alice Springs your HOME?

Todd St near KFC - site for HOME projection

Craig Walsh has taken video portraits of Alice Springs locals and they are currently being edited into a new artwork. The public are invited to come and view Craig’s latest work HOME (Alice Springs):

7.30 – 9.30pmThursday 12, Friday 13 and Saturday 14 May 2011

Todd St, Alice Springs, near KFC

This site has been described in the media, most memorably by Nicholas Rothwell writing for the Australian. His article was published on 19th February this year:

The infamous wall near KFC on Todd St will speak up with a diverse portrait of local people’s views on what “home” means to them. HOME can be seen as a counterpoint to the misery portrayed in the media and a way of reinterpreting and transforming the so called “Apartheid zones”.
