Research output: Non-traditional research outputDigital or Visual products


This film accompanies the major exhibition 'Peter Hennessey: Making it real' at The University of Queensland Art Museum (14 March – 12 July 2015). The exhibition reflects on the past decade of Hennessey's practice. Trained as an architect, Hennessey has established an international profile for his physically imposing, conceptually rigorous sculptures. He is inspired by the science of space exploration and comparable technological advances, and scours the Internet and other publicly available information to produce his work. The resulting sculptures are 're-enactments' of objects that allow people to encounter in three-dimensions what they would otherwise only see in reproduction, or on the Web. 9-minute documentary film, written and directed by Andrew Frost.
