Projected artwork thanks to Fluidart Quorn
The town of Quorn is counting the days until its new tourism attraction opens.
In early April, the Quorn Silo Light Show will be revealed to the public, offering a free animated projection show after sunset each night.
The project is thanks to the combined efforts of the Flinders Ranges Council, projection arts company illuminart, Viterra, and the Pichi Richi Railway, with the support of Federal Drought funding.
The half hour Son et lumière will feature sights and stories of the region, and will be followed by a showcase of local imagery, photography, and art.
“We are looking forward to having the project completed and it will be a fantastic tourism opportunity to inspire and encourage visitors to stay longer in Quorn,” says Flinders Ranges Council Mayor, Peter Slattery.
The Quorn Silo sits in the heart of the town and overlooks the Pichi Richi Railway precinct.
Director of illuminart, Cindi Drennan, says the team is thrilled to be putting the finishing touches to the projection system, with the test images having been revealed to town acclaim.
Locals have been and will be employed in the set up and maintenance of the installation.
“The Quorn Silo Light Show offers a bright after dark attraction, with the added benefits of storytelling, entertainment and appreciation of our area,” says Drennan.
“As the night becomes silent, it will become a digital exhibition of images contributed by local people ‐ a showcase of what we, the community of the Flinders Ranges area, are proud of, updating to new themes regularly.”
