Everything Changes, works in progress...

Everything Changes Over Time by Lachlan McDougall was officially opened on Thursday 14 January. It was great to see such a large crowd getting involved in the installation with many people taking off their shoes to walk around on the pigmented floor. We did have a bit of cleaning up to do with some foot prints coming to and from the toilets to the gallery! The things you do in the name of art!
As you know, the main idea of this work is to see how the work evolves over time with patrons walking over and through the pigmented text on the canvas floor. We took some shots during the exhibition opening which will allow you to see the changes so far...

This is how it was looking during the installation... still a lot of white showing through on the floor.

This is at the start of the launch, with a few patrons walking around on the floor. Still many of the images and text are recognisable.

The floor is starting to become more of a blur of colours as people make their mark on the canvas.

Towards the end of the evening, the floor has become very trampled and almost covered in pigment.

Many people have asked if it's going to look like this for the rest of the exhibition. Well no, the artist will be coming in to add more text in pigment, allowing viewers to walk again through more text.

To find out more about the process, join us on Saturday 30 January from 2pm to hear from Lachlan McDougall and see the changes made throughout the show.
