2018-12-06 00:00:00 2018-12-11 00:00:00 Australia/Brisbane 'Directions of ziggurats to scale' by Dr Jason Nelson In celebration of the artist-in-residence program at the Queensland State Archives, we are projecting Dr Jason Nelson Directions of ziggurats to scale onto the William Jolly Bridge from Thursday 6th to Monday 10th December 2018. Jason has spent several months exploring the collection to identify papers, photographs, videos, sounds and objects to create a series of fictional narratives in new artworks. The resulting works will culminate into an exhibition of digital and interactive installations, The Wonders of Lost Trajectories, opening in on 4 December at Runcorn. Jason explains “What is a ziggurat? While it refers to a type of structure in Mesopotamia, it is also a synonym for large publicly used structure, which both references the bridge and the content of the artwork.” Jason is a Queensland creator of curious and wondrous digital art and writing of off lives, builder of confounding art games and all manner of curious digital creatures.
