EXHIBITION KINGSTON Collection of the land

Collection of the Land: Rain Shaker

27 May 2024 – 2 Jul 2024

An alternative, digital projection by artist Nathaniel Stewart / oldmatee788 that celebrates our place, creativity and the interlink of our many cultures.

The installation at The Bridge, a third story walk bridge at Kingston City Hall that’s visible by thousands of commuters travelling along Nepean Highway, focuses on the energy that being passed from the sky to the earth through rain, thunder, clouds and local animal footprints. It displays a shared celebration of our place, creativity and the interlink of our many cultures, with new age art intertwined with ancient land and history.

Collection of the Land // Rain Shaker is a channel through the artists eyes that simultaneously depicts shared genuine common ground being the backyard that we all live in.

oldmatee788 is the alias of an alternative projectional artist, Nathanial Stewart, exploring the realm of analogue, digital fusion, multi-sensory design and visually expressive experiences.

Nathaniel is continually expanding his artistry through organic generative video synthesis, creative installations, video production, immersive space curation, graphic design and emotive driven experiences. He is embracing new age mediums and various emerging technologies to assist with the exploration of naturalistic optical intricacies, digital and analogue fusion, disposition of emerging technologies and immersive innovation integrated with expressive visualisation. Nathaniel is currently based on the Mornington Peninsula (Lands of the Bunurong).

Held every year from 27 May to 3 June, National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
