Seven creative and Digital Arts students from Charles Darwin University are currently showcasing their illuminating artworks in the City of Darwin’s CityLife Lightbox Platform.
The exhibit will be running at the Nightcliff Pool, Smith Street Mall and Dragonfly Carpark from now until September.
Themed “Night + Day”, the exhibition displays a variety of bright works from the artistic pool of digital media students. The artworks, CDU Creative and Digital Arts course coordinator Sarah Pirrie said, reflects the Northern Territory as a theme.
“Just like the lightboxes which illuminate both day and night, our CDU creatives have considered the thematic of Night and Day through engagement with the site. Storytelling and placemaking are attuned to personal histories and encounters with Darwin’s living environment,” Ms Pirrie said.
CDU senior student Aaron Othman’s digital composite artwork “The Flying Squad” represents the past and present as a battleground and memorial site for the bombing of Darwin.
Likewise, CDU student Thuy Truong’s, artwork reflects her interest and creative interpretation of Darwin’s Vietnamese-Australian culture titled “Chilling in the Rain.”
Works of other student artists presented in the exhibition include those of Shannan Hayes, Nikita Kafetzis, Rafael Lontoc, Isabelle Henderson and Jemma Petch.
The experimentation, development and creative progress of the works are being shared by the students through the Digital Arts NT website: www.digitalartsnt.space/blog.
