Gertrude St Projection Festival
Atherton Gardens Towers
2013, now in its sixth year, illuminated 10 winter nights with new media art projections on buildings, laneways, tree trunks and footpaths around Gertrude St.
After the amazing light shows I captured earlier this year at White Night Melbourne, I headed northside to bring you these photos from Fitzroy. The Atherton Gardens public-housing towers were the main attraction, featuring an assortment of balloons, spiders and film noir eyes being projected onto the building.
