QT HOTEL PORT DOUGLAS

RECEPTION HIRAKI SAWA (B. 1977 ICHIKAWA, JAPAN) Tracking [From Zero] LoveArt’s customised moving image installations for QT Port Douglas offer guests an engaging and novel experience during check in. Japanese artist Hiraki Sawa’s work Tracking [From Zero], 2011 is presented across a bespoke 7 screen plasma display behind reception in the hotel’s lobby. An ocean view melds into a flock of flying Australian Cockatoos, soaring through a desert sky. The usual travel fatigue is soothed as viewers are engaged and enveloped in an immersive world of sound and image. The work relates to the sound installation ‘O’, originally commissioned by the QAGoMA for The 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art in Brisbane, Australia.

RECEPTION DANIEL CROOKS (B. 1973 NEW ZEALAND)  Static No. 6 As dawn breaks, Daniel Crooks work Static No. 6, 2003 takes over the screen, setting the scene for morning check ins and those making their way to the beach. A traditional Australian beach scene becomes hyperreal, hypnotic and strange as Crooks continues his ongoing Time Slice project through investigating the formal tangibility of time. He extracts thin slices from a moving image and then recombines them using spatial and temporal displacement. He ruptures the space/time continuum, which forced the eye into new modes of perception.
