The Space In-Between is an immersive installation piece coming in November 2020, exploring the differences between expectation and reality. It presents a surreal, inside out world encouraging our audience to engage in processing this difference and allowing them to indulge in the experience.
Audiences can interact and explore our recognisable but unfamiliar world which mixes the inside and outside works of a backyard BBQ scene and a suburban home; engaging in a playful and escapist manner removed from expectation and reality. You can take your shoes off and feel the grass/carpet under your feet, You can stick your head through the TV to find an upside down miniature world, or even find the miniature ecosystem living in the secret garden growing from the BBQ; soaking in all the little details the space offers.
Ultimately the choice is yours, but however active you choose to be, there are ways for everyone to immerse in a manner that allows you to escape the anxiety and pressures of the outside world.
The Space In-Between is the brainchild of Zoe Benjamin, a multimedia artist working alongside a talented group of graduating AFTRS screen creatives. Similar to the successful Pipilotti Rist exhibition Sip My Ocean, and reminiscent of the upcoming Van Gogh Alive, The Space In-Between is a perfect addition to a city crying out for art in a post-COVID environment.
Our goal is to exhibit this project in an under-utilised Sydney space, so we can bring more life to the cultural fabric of the city. By the beginning of November 2020 we will have built our dreamscape and will be ready to exhibit to the public.
Your money will be going towards making this project happen – construction costs, equipment hire, space rental and everything else that comes with a project this ambitious! Additionally, you’ll be ensuring that we as students and collaborators will be able to focus on developing this project without the stress or financial hassle that comes with self-funding.
