Holo-Poetry is animated, transforming concrete poetry video art displayed through the artist’s signature miniature projection sculpture. With connections rooted in the field of digital poetry and electronic literature, the faux holographic display turns poetic phrases into layered visuals that focus on poetic repetition created not just by the author, but by the layered sculpture itself. In this way, artist and sculpture work together to create poetry. The words refracted through the sculpture reflect notions of living in South East Queensland.
HOLO-POETRY will be on display at the Judith Wright Centre from 24 August – 24 September, 2017
Alinta Krauth is a new media artist and digital poet. Her practices include projection art, interactive art, sound art, and electronic literature, and the inherent connections between these fields. She is interested in how digital art may be applied to highlight environmental destruction, particularly with regards to climate change.
Her literary, creative, and hybrid works have been exhibited and published globally. Most notably: her research and practice on interactive controllers for projection-mapped objects and faux-holographic sculptures, interactive screen-based public experiences, how climate change effects the senses, bushwalking as proprioceptive act, and the connection between gravity and proprioception in music listening.
Recent exhibitions include ISEA Vancouver, Piksel Norway, and Transmediale Berlin. Recent solo shows have been seen in Art Laboratory Berlin and within the forests of Australia and Norway.
