Main image for PROTOSTAR SPACE STATION: SEASON TWO

Statement:

Most people don’t expect strangers to believe in them. Maybe there’s a catch, a trick, or something expected in return. Belief is the most important thing we offer to our Protostars.

The concept of Protostars is simple: find people with a passion project, give them a small amount of money and surround them with a community of creators. Then give them total, uncomplicated belief. Once someone is told their passion is important, that it really matters, they are given the freedom to imagine, explore and create. And once this cohort of Protostars was selected, that’s exactly what they did. They were made up of musical theatre directors, vintage camera builders, film makers, Web 3 builders, art curators, publishers, engineers and metaverse fashion designers from the far reaches of Australia and New Zealand. What we’ve seen in this cohort is just the beginning.

Belief changes everything.

Joel Connolly, Creative Director & Head of Blackbird Foundation

3D Environment Description:

The viewer spawns on a main metallic platform. Facing an introductory screen, the viewer is surrounded by floating metallic content boards, displaying various Protostars and their respective projects. The platform floats in space, adjacent to additional platforms housing similar boards and projects. Asteroids orbit above the space above circular screens bearing the Blackbird Foundation Logo.

Tell us about your project. CONCRETE is a 25min short film that explores the relationship of 3rd Generation Greek Australians to their historical and contemporary culture.It focuses on Aggelos, who on one night, is torn between the decision to go to Greek Easter or a Warehouse Rave and the questions of identity that it provokes. Moving between the industrial landscapes of Inner Sydney, a series of surreal interactions push Aggelos towards an answer that blends both of his worlds. As CONCRETE is still in development, the film has not been made! (eyes peeled come December.) But here is a tonal mood board from the CONCRETE creative treatment.

The Asian-Australian Experience

Artist name Abby Shen
Artwork Description:

The Asian-Australian Experience comprises of a series of interviews and film photographs of diverse Chinese-Australians, showcasing the nuances and complexities of Chinese culture intertwined with the Australian experience. The purpose of this project is to show that Chinese culture and people are diverse - there’s more to us culturally, and as individuals, than is known beyond the model myth stereotype or monolithic culture that society often relegates us to. Image of Zoe Wong (one of my favourite images I’ve taken so far in the project). I found Zoe by looking through the artists being featured in 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art’s latest exhibition, and was immediately drawn to Zoe and her work.

Waveform::Touch and Sound Panels

Artist name Gilbert Garden
Artwork Description:

Gilbert(they/them) is working on making Interactive Instruments! Their plan is to make and paint a set of two suspended panels. The bottom is the control panel, painted with areas of conductive paint, connected to a Teensy chip that translates touch to midi data which then adjusts the sound. The sound is generated by the top panel, which generates sound through an attached audio exciter. Essentially allowing them to turn art into synthesisers!

The pipeline begins at a painting made with conductive ink, when people touch the conductive elements it talks to a Microcontroller which sends MIDI data to a computer and controls parts of a sound.

SEASON THREE: PEACE & LOVE Virtual Exhibition

Artist name Ivan Medrano
Artwork Description:

Hello, I’m Ivan 👋 I’m a freelance 3D artist and designer specialising in digital fashion and meta-art. Graduating with a Bachelor of Design from Edith Cowan University, I use my skills to build art spaces, (like the BlackBird Protostar digital exhibition!) that elevate the metaverse as a platform for young artists, liberated from the ethnocentric practices of institutionalised art spaces. I see NFTs and digital design as the future of art, free from the restrictions of monetary thresholds and physical boundaries. I want to make luxury, self-expression, and art making more accessible, as we shift from an era of technology as a product to technology as a lifestyle.

SEASON THREE: PEACE & LOVE Virtual Exhibition

Artist name Ivan Medrano
Artwork Description:

SEASON THREE PEACE & LOVE MODEL FOUR, forms from Da Vinci’s battle tank illustrations have been appropriated to construct shapes of alluring opulence, reinforcing the femme fetale concept of the series. Collaborating with LA-based designer Yuval Ozery, and Russian photographer Arslan Mominkulov, Ivan Medrano's series ‘SEASON THREE: PEACE & LOVE’ explores the contrast between medieval combat armour and images of demurity and romance. The garments feature motifs of hearts, pearls, and femininity, all encased in cold metal. The SEASON THREE collection was displayed in a virtual exhibition, allowing an international range of participants to gather and view the work. Digitalised in content and form, the series was a token to the possibilities of the metaverse as a catalyst for accessibility and innovation in the art world. There’s little we can control in life, however, the manner in which we carry ourselves in action and appearance remains a cornerstone of authority we find comfort and security in. In this way, fashion acts as a form of armouring, shielding a wearer through plates of identity. To adorn yourself is to take control of how you are perceived, accepted, or rejected by the world.

"Daunted Magazine is a semi-annual print publication that features emerging artists, designers, and writers. The magazine acts as a platform to facilitate publication discourse from creative practitioners earlier in their careers. The magazine is sold and distributed at cost, it is not-for-profit as this will encourage wider distribution and enable more accessible de-materialised local art. For the first edition of DAUNTED, Collaborators were asked to respond to ‘Public Transport’ as a prompt. Public Transport was selected as it is a widely accessible and common lived experience but naturally allows for very different interactions. For Example, these interactions can be social, as time, space or place, whatever approach was taken was dependent on the contributors’ experience. DAUNTED has been distributed at local Perth stores that reciprocate the value our magazine places on community art activation, Contributors to the magazine were given 5 copies each to distribute to their own local networks. DAUNTED Magazine differs from other art magazines, as the key objective for the publication is a deliberate and considered approach to distribution, the hope is that by encouraging natural distribution streams without reliance on profitability; the magazines may land within circles that can facilitate work or commissions for the involved artists. By having a mass physical product, artists can display a level of professionalism that may be difficult to access at this early stage of their careers."

I have a background in creative media; I have worked in Service Design, Graphic Design, Printing, Screen Production, and Photography; I don't plan to stop trying new things.
