The 2010 installation of Doomsday Vanitas was interspersed through the laneways and alleys off Guildford Lane, Melbourne, transforming the precinct into a surreal, video game-like labyrinth, where the objects for survival are there to be admired, but are ultimately unobtainable.
Doomsday Vanitas used sharp, hologram-like projections to create a series of ominous still lifes, lying in wait for viewers to “collect”. Inspired by the highly symbolic objects for survival which recur through film, literature and gaming culture.
Doomsday Vanitas was shown as part of the 2010 Next Wave Festival and exhibited at Dianne Tanzer Gallery + Projects as part of the On The Screen program
