My partner John McInerney and I have recently purchsed a 99 year
lease on a terrace house located at 44 Argyle Place, Millers Point.
We are very excited about being able to contribute to and live in
this amzing part of Sydney.
This year's Art + About program has a project called "Unguarded
Moments" which will be centred on Millers Point. We are delighted
that there will be a screening of images in the front window of our
new home. More intimate images of the area will be back projected
into the 6 panelled window, which will be easily visible from the
footpath. From the web site
"WHAT IF faces from the past were visible
again, watching us in our streets and laneways? Sourced from
archival documentary footage, intimate portraits of past residents
and workers are projected onto the walls and buildings of Millers
Point, capturing the fleeting nature of life and the dramatic
changes that have occurred to this historic precinct.
Working closely with film archivists and the local
community, creative studio Killanoodle, in collaboration with
researcher and producer Sarah Barns, have sourced extraordinary
portraits, accompanied by a fascinating blog. Wander through the
area and then catch interviews with residents, oral histories and
extended footage online www.unguardedmoments.com.au
To see the projections begin at Abraham Mott Hall, walk down
Kent Street towards Walsh Bay and Windmill Steps, then along
Hickson Road towards Sydney Harbour Bridge, where you'll finish up
at the roundabout near Pottinger Street.
As this project contains projections we recommend
viewing after 5.00pm"
