The vibrant patterns and brightly coloured imagery in “Waratah” is inspired by the flowers of Australia's exotic and unique natural flora and fauna. This symbolic act of ascending and descending a staircase is a device used to bring about deeper thinking on global environmental issues. Each rise of a step holds one fraction of a larger image. When viewed at the base of the staircase, the individual elements join together to make the artwork as a whole. In the same way we might think that our individual efforts towards a more sustainable future might seem futile against the larger issues of global warming and irreversible ecological damage. Yet its everyone's small steps that together make a greater impact as a whole.

A collaborative duo, Rose Staff x Nick Azidis, working together as Projection Teknik to create immersive projection installations and murals that explore geometric abstraction, optical illusions and push the boundaries of public art.
Rose Staff is a media visual artist who works with moving images and live performance in a range of settings around the world, from contemporary art installations to large-scale vibrant projections at festivals. Using experimental hybrids of traditional and digital art forms, Rose explores how contemporary phenomena such as communication technologies and audio-visual space influence our perception of the modern world.
Nick Azidis is a media artist and projection illusionist specialising in large-scale projections in both digital and analogue mediums. He is interested in storytelling, creating eternal memories and changing viewers perceptions through the image and light in his work. Azidis gains his original artistic inspiration from the streets and buildings of Melbourne city itself. He creates aesthetically beautiful pieces that transform a viewer’s perception of their surroundings. His ability to interpret creative ideas and create an aesthetic that serves the project is the fundamental basis of all his work.
The two artists came together early in 2016 to create the installation for White Night Melbourne, a sound and vision projection at the State Library of Victoria. Over the last four years, they have worked on many major events and projects throughout Australia and Europe. They share a passion for geometric abstraction, optical illusions and exploring the field of public art.
