An installation by Josh Chaffey, supported by the Tamworth Regional Council celebrating 125 years of public electricity in the Southern Hemisphere.
Artist Josh Chaffey was commissioned to create a site specific artwork which was installed on the museum’s facade during the event. Using LED lights, Chaffey created a map of Tamworth’s original 21km of street lighting, seen as a grid pattern on the building. With multiple circuits switched by computer controlled software a multiplicity of visual patterns was produced.
ReKabled was part of the IMAGinE Award Winning project QUASQUICENTENNIAL OF LIGHT: 1888 – 2013
