OUT OF THIS WORLD Constructing site-specific installations, Brisbane-based artist Meagan Streader draws visual cues from futuristic and natural atmospheres and systems to engulf the viewer in a sensory experience. Integrating geometric line and light, Streader’s W-inter is an interplay between light, geometric line and architecture in an immersive, futuristic form of cyberspace. Featuring a field of illuminated linear structures, this large-scale light installation responds to the gallery site and extends the architecture of the space through line. Through the replication of interconnected linear masts, the work exists as a hypnotic landscape within the gallery. W-inter creates an immersive experience for viewers, reflecting a minimal, otherworldly space derived from the architecture of the historic building and gallery – considering the site in its past, present and future states. Streader’s recent explorations push the limits of light within sculpture and installation through reinterpretations and extensions of surrounding spaces. Employing the repetition and replication of light, form, and textiles en masse, her works are realised through the construction of installations, sculpture, video, and soundscapes. Streader has received financial assistance from the Queensland Government through the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy - an initiative of the Australian, state and territory governments.
