Altar to the Future
Victoria University’s Skunk Control
At the end of a corridor, Altar to the Future tempts you with a dream within a dream from which you don’t want to wake up. It provides a portal to observe the colliding majesty of ideas, futures and the myriad of interpretations and consequences of these. This is a place where the future can be picked, nourished, weeded and pruned; a place of contemplation, a reminder of possibilities once forgotten but still available and a place where aspirations are deciphered and vividly accessible.
The millions of ever-changing colours observed through the Altar’s large rotating portal are due to white light’s interaction with and navigation through the materials that make up the altar’s flowers. The flowers appear transparent in the absence of the rotating portal but appear alive and in constant change when observed through it.
