TURN: Bathurst Winter Festival 2020

Sat July 4 - Sun July 19



Turn is a digital animation featuring bold symbols in a set of looping animations including a water droplet and ripples, two figures hand in hand, a moon/sun rise, an allseeing eye and a tear. The symbols convey a message of healing, strength and acceptance.

“More than just a light projection, Turn is a specially commissioned artwork by two of the region’s most successful designers, Sonny Day and Biddy Maroney,” says BRAG Director Sarah Gurich. “This beautiful animation is a poignant message of humanity, hope, and resilience.”

Turn is one of seven illuminations for the 2020 Bathurst Winter Festival and will be projected in the BRAG/Bathurst Library Forecourt, visible along Keppel Street from Machattie Park, from Saturday 4 July to Sunday 19 July from Sunset til 10pm each night.

The other illuminations produced by ESEM projects as part of the 2020 Bathurst Winter Festival can be seen at the Court House, 84 George Street, 173 George Street, 99 Keppel Street and 11 Keppel Street (Doppio).

WBYK (Sonny Day and Biddy Maroney) work across illustration, design and art. Working together since 2006, playing with colour, shape and texture their work is influenced by comic books, skateboarding, music and film.
