Interweave Group wanted to create an opener for the 2018 AGDA Awards showcase that was happening in Melbourne. The piece needed to be reflective of the real Melbourne, the getting beer spilt on you at the Tote kind of Melbourne.
For each of the categories in the awards, we created abstract scenes referencing the craft involved. Each scene was then painstakingly painted by Dan Cookson and Cassie Stevens using black sumi ink to create a raw, unpredictable, stop-motion piece to kick off the awards night.
