Balmain Glass(light)House – a potted history

Balmain Glass(light)house highlights video

Moving image and light installation commissioned for the edge festival, 2019

This installation brings attention to an iconic, but often overlooked, civic building: the Balmain Glass House. The glass house is transformed into a fantastical lightbox, revealing little-known histories through audio-visual storytelling.

Through this project we reveal how the protection and restoration of the Balmain Glass House is a wonderful story of the emergence of environmental awareness in the inner west of Sydney.
