'Data Rock (Take Me Somewhere Nice)' by Kailum Graves
Date & Time
Mon 14 - Wed 23 Jan 2019
In celebration of the 2019 Australian Youth Water Polo Championships, Kailum Graves’ Data Rock (Take Me Somewhere Nice) will be projected onto the William Jolly Bridge from 14 – 23 January.
Data Rock (Take Me Somewhere Nice) is a series of abstract landscapes created by sequentially copying the colour of every pixel in six 100px x 100px images and pasting it successively to create entirely new images from the sampled pixels. Kailum Graves uses photography and photographic documentation to generate abstract architectures of data and lived experience. His use of the grid and self-similar pattern structures express a tension between the individual and the collective, similarly found within the pool during a water polo match.
Kailum is an emerging artist who has exhibited internationally and nationally, including at the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra; participating in international exhibitions in London, Venice, Rio de Janeiro, and an international conference in Mexico City; undertaken a residency in Iceland; won the 2016 Clayton Utz Art Award; and has been acquired into the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery’s permanent collection.
The 2019 Australian Youth Water Polo Championships are on from 12-4 January at the Brisbane Aquatic Centre (Sleeman Sports Complex).
