Can you imagine a post-carbon world with sustainable energy artistically woven into the fabric of our cities? This year Melbourne is the home of Energy Overlays, an ideas competition celebrating renewable energy infrastructure that enhances cities as works of public art while cleanly powering thousands of homes. 

Hundreds of design teams from all over the world have envisioned proposals for large-scale works of public art capable of producing clean energy for the St Kilda Triangle site. Each artwork is designed to produce clean energy whilst providing an imaginative and culturally sensitive educational experience for visitors. 

The 25 shortlisted designs will be on display at Federation Square from October 11 to 17, offering an exciting glimpse into a imaginative post-carbon future. If you'd like a chance to attend the awards ceremony, 5.30-7.30pm 11 October, please send us an email. It's free! 

Energy Overlays is hosted and  sponsored by the State of Victoria and made possible through partnerships with The Land Art Generator Initiative, Carbon Arts, The City of Port Phillip, Climarte, Fed Square and the Regional Centre for Culture.

Re-imagining Energy Castlemaine: Open studio 

Public art, architecture and renewable energy collide in Re-Imagining Castlemaine, a unique cross-disciplinary design workshop bringing forward visions for an energy generating public artwork for a site in Castlemaine, Victoria. 

The workshop will bring together artists, engineers, architects and designers interested in employing energy technologies as the material for their work, and will point to pathways for innovation and experimentation in the delivery of public art.

Join Carbon Arts as we present the outcomes of the workshop in an open studio format over the weekend of 13 & 14 October at the heritage-listed Goods Shed in Castlemaine. 

This project is made possible thanks to a grant from the Regional Centre for Culture and through the State Government of Victoria’s sponsorship of the LAGI2018 Design Competition for St Kilda Triangle and associated events.

Open Studio 
11:00 - 4:00pm

Reading a River: Public art along the Derwent

Join GASP! for refreshments and a bush food barbecue by palawa kipli as they launch two exciting new public sculpture projects that emerged from Swimmable! Reading the Rivera curatorial partnership between Carbon Arts and the Glenorchy Art and Sculpture Park (GASP!). 

Julie Gough’s HUNTING GROUND incorporating Barbecue Area explores sites where BBQ areas have been built around Tasmania - vital hunting and living places for her maternal family prior to European colonisation. James Geurts’ Refraction Principle signifies the site where fresh river and salt tidal water meet, embodying the opposition between invisible and apparent forces. 

The many partners and sponsors contributing to Swimmable! include the Australia Council of the Arts, Arts Tasmania, Ian Potter Foundation, Derwent Estuary Program, Glenorchy City Council, Aquenal Marine Solutions, Sense-T, CSIRO, UTAS and Montrose Bay High School.
