ART GRANT

Origin Fields approached Danger Dave (Cool Shit) to commission an installation for Origin Fields 2018 entitled "Pool Freaks."

The Origin Fields project had Dave create a unique project which was informed by a direct collaboration with the festival investigating the theme of a Western Australian summer get-together.

Three large inflatable sculptures were erected in the Langley Park site, amalgamating inflatable pool toys and refreshing treats such as ice cream and fruit, resulting in larger than life characters with which the festival public interacted.

This year, Origin Fields are looking for enthralling and interactive submissions for the 2019 art grant. Successful candidate will be allocated a budget of $10,000 to create their piece to be displayed at the festival.
