3D Grassland goes fabric for FASHFEST

3D Grassland goes fabric for FASHFEST

The 3D animated ‘Grassland’ sequence provides the stunning design for one of the FASHFEST contemporary swimwear. The palm beetle and cicada (from the Australian National Insect Collection, CSIRO) are amongst the featured ‘stars’ in the designs, although they might be rather hard to find in the sheer brilliance and pattern of the printed fabric.

The other four designs are full of colour as you can imagine with such beautiful Australian insects as inspiration. These will be revealed on the night at FASHFEST.

There are also a suite of artworks from Grasslands as shown on Studio E L E A N O R G A T E S T U A R T Australia.

If you are interested in knowing more about Eleanor’s work – please contact her directly.

Sneak Peak ENLIGHTEN 2013

Eleanor Gates-Stuart's Architectural Projections, ENLIGHTEN 2013

Eleanor Gates-Stuart’s Architectural Projection Artwork, ENLIGHTEN 2013

ENLIGHTEN: A sneak peek at one of the architectural projections starting tonight in Canberra.

It has been an amazing experience to make the concepts become real and to see the buildings transform with the artworks. Wow… large scale and in 3D .. amazing.

Electric Canvas are brilliant to work with and have created an excellent showcase for Enlighten 2013.  The above image shows Questacon actually lit up (centre image) whilst the other smaller images are my concept sketches. I hope to publish these here soon once the Enlighten Program is well on its way. The National attraction buildings that have my artwork: the National Library of Australia, Questacon and the Museum of Australian Democracy (Old Parliament).
