Solar Equation by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer for The Light in Winter, Federation Square Solar Equation by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer for The Light in Winter, Federation Square

As we pass from Spring to Winter and the Winter Solstice approaches this is an edition inflected with change. The photograph on this page is of Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s giant creation for Melbourne’s The Light in Winter festival, Solar Equation, a work which will hover over Federation Square for a month. The artist describes it as “a piece for the sky”, mathematically monitoring changes on the surface of the sun. You can interact with its equations (see interview). Other changes are marked by the final showing of the National Review of Live Art in Glasgow and our review of James Waites’ Whatever Happened to the STC Actors’ Company?. Pierrot Bidon, the founder of Archaos has died and we celebrate his re-making of circus. Elsewhere we congratulate Lawrence English for 10 years of ROOM40, report on changes in dance touring strategies and music commissioning tactics. Chirstinn Whyte notes radical shifts in dancefilm thinking at Moves 10 in Liverpool, Mike Walsh at the Hong Kong Film Festival sees Chinese feature films searching for new formulae and Jana Perkovic wonders if Live Art will take in Australia. Is more change on the way? Our annual arts and education edition and report from the Next Wave Festival in RealTime 98 will have something to say about that.
