A mixed media video projection & interactive sound installation by Damian Castaldi & Solange Kershaw.

Sculpture at Scenic World opened on Thursday the 1st of April 2021. The 9th annual exhibition was again set amongst the towering rainforest in the heart of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains. The outdoor, location based exhibition captured the imagination of young and old with dozens of thought-provoking artworks from emerging and established artists. The exhibition ran for the full month from April the 1st to May the 2nd 2021.

rainFalls is an ode to the senses and a rich audio-visual experience. Picture the world as green as where you are now. Rest your elbows on the rail and bring your hands to your ears. Let the sound of thunder and rain travel through your body and watch it fall beyond.

Damian Castaldi and Solange Kershaw are established Blue Mountains artists who also collaborate as The Last Bureau. They bring together their combined practices in creative programming, sound design, audio-visual installation and sculpture to create and produce public works of art.
