Renew Participants: Collide Public Art Initiative – Projections On Collins


As part of the Renew Docklands program, the following activation is one of several projection sites in the area that offers a platform for digital media creatives and artists. 

This series of projections aims to bring vibrancy and buzz back to the streets of Docklands, and showcases local artists and creators working with the latest in visual and projection technologies.


Inside Out Reflections

Collide is a public art initiative that connects artists, architects, developers and government to create impactful public artworks, with artist James Voller at the helm. James’s practice is focused on creating large-scale public artworks that examine places and architecture.

The piece ‘Inside Out Reflections’ is no different. This work will explore Melbourne’s suburban architecture imagery by projecting it on Collins Street. The work will take imagery from Melbourne’s Heritage warehouses as a border to the exterior of the shopfront with cut-out sections for projection imagery. Digital manipulated photographs of the State Library of Victoria will be colourised and rear-projected into the cut-out sections, depicting factory interiors from in
and around Docklands.

Collide Public Art

Collide research, design and facilitate artworks in public places, which can include temporary works, residency-based research, exhibitions, events and even large-scale permanent works created in collaboration with governments, developers and architects.

Working with individual artists, curators and galleries, Collide serves as a conduit between these parties to foster urban storytelling, meaningful placemaking and inspired communities.
