Vann Law
Night, Good Night

Site Specific

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
The commissioner, RMIT, had been accepted to present animations as part of Melbourne’s White Night. Through a brief and a call for proposals, ‘Night, Good Night’ was selected to be made. It was timely, as I had been exploring video projection and collage illustration.

How was the illustration used:
As a White Night Festival video projection on Building 2, RMIT along Bowen Street, Melbourne, Australia.

How did you make this work:
We were given a building facade to project on. Windows and walls - a different kind of screen. What if we pulled a window pane out in 3D? What if window panes were comic panels? I wanted to combine the theme ‘Night, the beloved’ and my hometown, Kuching, Sarawak into a singular projection. After the initial sketch and storyboard, this animation collage was created digitally with After Effects.
