HUNTER residents have been given another week to catch an after-dark reflection on the city’s history.
Short animations are being projected onto a Wright Lane building as part of Honeysuckle Lights, one of five “place making” projects funded by the state government and designed in conjunction with University of Newcastle (UON) staff, students and alumni.
School of Architecture and Built Environment’s Nicholas Foulcher and School of Creative Industries’ Jane Shadbolt collaborated on the project, which also received council funding and comprises 13 artists’ work.
“The idea was to activate a pretty dark area of Honeysuckle,” she said.
“The brief for students was to try and reflect on the architecture and former use of the building – it used to be part of the carriage works.
“Their work didn’t necessarily have to be historically accurate.
“They had abstract ideas – they took the concept and made it fanciful and fun.”
The project has been extended to close at midnight on Friday.
