Accomplished Melbourne artist Rone spent a year designing and implementing an ephemeral immersive installation in the “Burnham Beeches”, a derelict 1930s streamline-moderne mansion on Melbourne’s outskirts.
After a six-week public exhibition, the property was to be returned to its original state with white walls and rooms cleared of the installed light and audio equipment, furniture, fittings, artworks, wallpaper, murals, penetrating trees and pervasive leaf litter.
In order to document the installation’s intrinsic impermanence, Rone decided to create a hyperlapse. He approached Digital Tsunami to organise the technology required, and so dolly track and a motion control rig and experienced operator were arranged.
In collaboration with Rone, lighting cameraman and editor Chris Matthews, and motion control rig operator Gerald Thompson, a sixty second hyperlapse sequence was choreographed. In synch to music, the camera panned, tilted and zoomed as it travelled along a twenty metre track, which was replicated more than sixty times. Two long tables in a dining hall and everything including the bar beyond were progressively removed.
In editing, Chris dissolved slowly between selected shots to convey the ephemerality of the installation as the room reverted from an immersive environment to a bare white shell.
Multiple matched cameras and a slider provided several viewpoints, intercut to emphasise the action.
