A sample of the video I made for the restaurant Chin Chin, they curate an art wall in which they project artist work to be displayed for restaurant-goers and passers-by. 

MATT DALY EXPLAINS, “WITH THIS PIECE, MY INITIAL CONCEPT WAS TO CREATE A SURREAL LANDSCAPE TO TRANSPORT THE GUESTS OF CHIN CHIN TO ANOTHER WORLD, ENCAPSULATING THE ENERGY OF THE RESTAURANT WITH MOMENTS OF INTENSITY AS THEY DINE. THE MAIN GOAL I HAD WAS TO REPRESENT THE DISTINCT CHARACTERISTICS OF THE VENUE AND THE WALL ON WHICH THE WORK IS DISPLAYED WITHIN THE WORLD I CREATED. FIRST WAS TO HARNESS THE URBAN FEEL THE WALL AND CHIN CHIN HOLD, GIVEN THEIR LOCATION IN THE HEART OF THE CBD, THE LARGE STATIC BLOCKS CHANNEL THE MONOLITHIC FORM OF THE SURROUNDING BUILDINGS LOOMING ABOVE. THE RUINS IN MY SCENE REPRESENT A LOST CITY FROM THE PAST, SOMETHING THAT THE HERITAGE-LISTED WALL SHARES. THE BLUE LINE STRUCTURES REPRESENT THE NEW, TECHNOLOGICALLY-FOCUSED ADVANCEMENTS IN THE CITY, WITH MOST BUILDINGS COVERED IN ANTENNAS AND RECEIVERS. WITH THE CURRENT CHANGE FROM WINTER TO SUMMER, WE’RE STARTING TO SEE BEAUTIFUL, LIGHT NIGHT SKIES AND RICH ORANGE SUNSETS – I WANTED MY WORLD TO SHARE THIS TOO. THESE IDEAS COMBINED TO CREATE A SURREAL DEPICTION OF MELBOURNE AND THE SPACE THAT SURROUNDS CHIN CHIN.”
