Whilst in Melbourne we visited ACMI Australian Centre for the Moving Image
The last time I was here was 5 years ago when Rhody my son was 6months old. I spent 3 hours watching films while I breastfed and we took fun photo's together in the in-house photo booth. This visit was just as fun as their was a interactive Film, TV and Digital Exhibition 'Screen Worlds', showing every TV console game ever invented. Our first game as a child was the black screen with the white rectangles on each side of the screen and you played tennis. I can still hear the sound ping, ping. The game got faster and faster as you progressed. Oh the memories! I also watched old episodes of Prisoner, watched an amazing still sculpture come to life as it spun on a disk as strobe lights shone onto it. Really brilliant! And played around in the Timeslice and flip book exhibits.
Below are video's from the Timeslice exhibit which was a room with 36 camera that recorded every move you made then you were able to email your moving image to yourself. Below are our images:

Below is a short moving image I made about making wishes. This is inspired by innocence, childs play, beauty, simplicity, interaction and a general wish for peace - inner peace, neighbourhood peace, community peace, world peace, rest in peace. Made in Australia November 2009, between Tamworth and Nundle on the side of the road in a Dandelion patch.
I hope you enjoy it.
