perspectus
queenstown heritage & arts festival, 2012
site-based installation

perspectus is a site specific public artwork, exhibited in the main street of Queenstown as part of the 2012 Queenstown Heritage and Arts Festival. A collaboration between Claire Krouzecky and Raef Sawford, the work used twelve 35mm slide projectors to project images of the surrounding landscape into multiple shopfront windows in the town.

Between them the projectors continuously cycled 960 slides each evening. The images themselves were a result of photographing eighty 360 degree panoramas of the landscape, over the course of an entire day. This temporal panoramic image was dispersed throughout the town, creating a myriad of luminous fragments and highlighting the rugged beauty of this unique terrain.
