Leafy Creations

Luminous Flower Lanterns
Luminous lanterns will look like sparkly, giant, magical flowers during the daytime, but as the day turns to dusk the giant flowers will begin to glow and pulse with an array of colours and help turn the landscape into an enchanted realm, lighting your journey from one place to the next.

 

 

Bryan Itch and Stiff Ives

Creatura

La Lumina Botanica

IzWoz

Psychedelium Australis
Forty square metres of outdoor banner art. A pictorial oracle of novel reflections. Visual artefacts summoned from time sand; Fungal fractal fascias of curious sepian technologies upon which to gaze, humor, question and wonder. Creatures of eternal dimensions as seen in their native habitats. Everyone a mystery - everyone a universe. Please feed the animals!

 

   

The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost

The Mindbender
Resonating with echoes of Stonehenge, the Ring of Brodgar, and other ritual spaces, this large-scale installation is a spiritual, psychedelic, and mind-blowing psychotropic machine, designed to envelop audiences in a pleasant and hypnotic multi-sensory experience. 

 

Kollide Projections

Light Fields
Large-scale outdoor video projection mapping. Prepare to immerse yourself within infinite spectrums of vast and luminous psychedelic visuals layered onto unsuspecting surfaces, as Kollide transforms the natural outdoor environment into a multidimensional visual spectral spectacular!

 

 

Liminal Caravan

A Temporary Autonomous Zone
Trailing a haze of dark smoky magic life dust in our wake, the Liminal Caravan creates portals... We believe in the beauty of the Mystery and we offer our hearts, full of love, to all creation... We create with what we find on our journey... Like Wombles in the mist... Gathering quartz, blood and feathers... Smashing the Symbols of the Empire... In the name of nothing... Except the heart's longing for grace...

 

Cinema & FILMS:

Psychedelic Cinema - Can cinema alter your consciousness? 

Can cinema alter your consciousness? Rich Haridy thinks so and is curating two nights of brain-altering short films and clips. Designed to disorientate and delight, these exclusive collections of oddities have been handpicked to twist your mind into knots. 

Featuring an assortment of strange short films, mad music, retro infomercials, archival experiments and anachronistic animations, the screenings sit somewhere in between moving wallpaper and a “clockwork orange-style” audiovisual assault. Come, have a drink, catch up with colleagues, and bond over a shared sense of outrage and confusion.

 

 

Icaros: A Vision

An exploration of fear and destiny in the jungle of the mind.
Filmmakers Leonor Caraballo and Matteo Norzi have drawn from their own experiences, allowing for a uniquely stirring film that touches on the notions of friendship, familial bonds, and the fear of the unknown. Visually inventive and hypnotic in nature, Icaros: A Vision captivates with its meditative look at a little-seen world, punctuated by truly trippy depictions of ceremonial splendor.

 

 

Ayahuasca and Huachuma are companion documentaries by Mitch Schultz that explore two powerful plants used for divination. Shot on location near lquitos, Peru at the SpiritQuest Sanctuary. The films follow a group of seekers through several traditional ayahuasca and huachuma ceremonies, documenting their experiences, insights and healing.
