Your Public Art Project

© State of New South Wales, Department of Education.

What is public art? How can it transform our local environment? Primary and secondary students from across NSW worked with Kaldor Public Art Projects to reimagine public spaces within their local communities. This eResource explores the school’s work using innovative technology to bring site specific works alive through 360 Virtual Reality video and 3D photogrammetry models. As well as reimagining Your Public Art Project submissions created by the five schools (Bourke Public School, Wilcannia Central School, Dulwich High School of Visual Arts and Design, Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School and St Clair High School), STEM students from Merryland’s High school designed an app, which also houses the works and takes the viewer on an immersive VR experience.
