HY William Chan Artist Talk
Monday 8 October 2012
5pm - 7pm
Initiated from the USU’s Kick Start Grant, Honours in architecture candidate HY William Chan has transformed the Law School with the light installation ‘Palette of Urban Green’ for the Verge Festival. The site-specific public artwork premiered at Vivid Sydney 2012 and was described as a highlight by the light festival director, Anthony Bastic.
Hosted by the Verge Gallery, hear the artist talk about the creation of his artwork and its journey to the largest festival of light, music and ideas in the Southern Hemisphere and now at the annual USU flagship cultural event.
'Palette of Urban Green' uses 100 environmentally sustainable timber pallets to create five interactive sculptures with LED lights that respond to movement.
HY William Chan received the Convocation Medal from the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning in 2011 and attended this year’s Venice International Architecture Biennale as a Byera Hadley Travelling Scholar, awarded by the NSW Architects Registration Board.
