Excited to share Tromarama’s presentation at NGV Triennale: A gallery-wide exhibition of 100 Artists and Designers from more than 30 countries. Featured here by Tromarama is ‘Solaris’ (2020), a neon curtain that pulses with the images of super-sized jellyfish, the work takes inspiration from the unique environment of Kakaban Lake on Kakaban Island – a ‘petty fish’ of evolution that is home to the stingless jellyfish. The work is ‘gamified’ and the ebb and flow of the depicted jellyfish is influenced in real time by the weather forecast on the Indonesian island.
