sky.of.tents

Georgina Humphries’ Installation Sky.of.tents  is a giant hanging patchwork (4 x 14 metres) made entirely from discarded tent material. Made completely by hand by Georgina, over five hundred fabric triangles (cut from the assortment of reclaimed Festival tents), were re-sewn together into a lattice work of “shard” like pyramids. Originally designed and commissioned for The Village (arts precinct of the Lorne Falls Festival 2013), the colourful fabric sail is usually hung as a large hanging ceiling. For the first time, for the 2016 Darebin Community & Kite Festival, Sky.of.tents was installed as a horizontal  interactive installation. Attached to the back of the main stage, the giant sail acted as a wind sock, blowing back and forth with the passing breeze and creating a tactile inflatable sculpture for festival goers.
