Sisyphus at Playtime (Endless Ball Machine), 2013

Screened February 22, 2013
Austhetic By Night
Federation Square Plaza & Big Screen
Melbourne VIC 3000

An absurdist view of playing tennis against a ball machine — endlessly. The animation refers to The Myth of Sisyphus in the endless of repetition of work (the animation is designed to loop indefinitely). It implies that activities outside ‘work’ can be just as dreary and repetitive.

The Austhetic curated program was supported by The City of Melbourne through the Arts Grant Program.
