The Legless Lizards present Arcadia, a multi-disciplinary art project that highlights/documents change in our local environment.
Our Arcadia projects usually take on one of the following formats:
The projected photos are made up from local people sharing photos of the natural flora and fauna, photos of historical significance, photos cataloging the conservation and the destruction of the natural area and photos of the transforming face of our environment.
Photos submitted range from simple happy snaps of people’s backyards to serious photography of the sweeping grasslands and wildlife of the Western Volcanic Plains.
We usually receive hundreds of photos when we run the Arcadia event and endeavour to credit all photographers. The results are always fascinating as we blend uploaded mobile phone snaps with photos submitted by professional photographers.
Photos are uploaded via our photo upload page and then compiled and creatively presented as projections accompanied with sound and music throughout each performance or continuously in the case of installations.
