A film 10,000 pixels wide. A mix of digital art and theatre that pushes the boundaries of audience experience. Brought to you by Richard Coburn and Justin Astbury, Anomalous is a film you have to be there to take part. Now extended as part of Adelaide Fringe 2024

Set five minutes/years? in the future, Anomalous is a satire on the developing climate of artificial intelligence and the increasingly digital world we live in. Part visual art event, part narrative exploration, it’s a non-linear story that uses the dimensions of the space at ILA to create an immersive experience for the viewer. Presented on The Light Room Studio’s 150sqm of LED screens, Anomalous is a project unlike any other that has to be watched in the space it was created for. Using a variety of techniques and styles to produce an engaging range of exciting content, the project explores its themes in a dynamic, never boring journey designed to captivate an audience. Mixing 3d and 2d animation, storytelling devices like documentary, visual poems and experiential digital art, Anomalous is like a jigsaw of smaller snippets of story that present this world for the audience to piece together the larger story. A beguiling mix of visual beauty and satirical humour using sights and sounds to present a compellingly unique experience. A crafted performance akin to digital theatre that needs to be experienced in the space it’s designed for. Anomalous is an exciting experiment in contemporary filmmaking. 


Anomalous was made possible through the support of the ILA Artist Fund and Novatech Creative Event Technology. 

Tickets: $30
