A trip into the city to see the Exhibition Time by Rone

This Sunday I decided to try something different and show my video today. Not sure what I will do on Monday. I hope you enjoy it.

For the last few months, nearly everyone in Melbourne has been talking about the Rone exhibition which is or was on at Flinders Street Station, it finishes today. I finally got to go and see it last Tuesday. One of the best things about going was that I finally got to see the fabled ballroom that is in the building. Needs a lot of work, seriously it would make the best wedding venue, people can catch trains there and then catch them home.

It was an amazing experience and something that I can relate to. I’ve done similar work in the past and it has inspired me to maybe get back to it.

I wasn’t sure if I would be allowed to take my camera so I decided I would depend on my phone. I took lots of photos, but also lots of videos. I have put together a video with those and lots of the photos. I know it is long, but I think so worth watching.

There was music playing while we walked around and a special soundtrack was composed for it. I knew I would have to remove that, so I have found other pieces of music that I think give a similar feel to the ones that were playing.

Here is the video. At the start and the end is the artist’s statement so you can see what the exhibition is about. Pause it if you need to.

I’m going to show you just a small selection of the photos here.

Happy Sunday everyone.

  1. Continuing….. pressed the wrong button and sent before finishing. Twenty minutes later and I am still here having been on s magical journey through time. Many of the images, I can relate to…. phones with dials, chalk-boards, no tea-leaves down the dink, cash tills, scales and much more. Such a well crafted video and such appropriate accompanying music. Well, now I am indeed going out, a little later than planned, but all the richer for the visual experience.

    1. I do that all the time, especially with emails. I know what you mean about the things, I can relate to so many as well. Much from my childhood. Thank you, I really enjoyed putting the video together and feel I’m getting better at that sort of one, so it is good to hear that people have enjoyed it. I hope you were too late Geoff and thank you so much.

  2. I was just going out. However, this looked interesting and I thought I would take a quick look. Twenty minutes later I am here writing after going on a magical time through

  3. This was beautifully presented Leanne I enjoyed being taken on your journey. Liz Combes

  4. Wow! What a wonderful installation/exhibition! There must have been so much to absorb in every space, not just all of the visuals but also the atmosphere and the exploration of the messages and themes and motifs. I would have loved to have seen this with my own eyes so thank you for sharing your photos and videos so I could enjoy it vicariously.

    1. It was Laura, it was so amazing. I think it was one of those things that I wish I had gone earlier and then been able to go again, just so I could see more.You’re welcome, glad you could go via the video. Thank you Laura.

  5. OMG Leanne, this was absolutely fabulous! Were the portraits projected onto the walls or were they wallpapered on the walls? Also was this in one big room or different rooms. This is something that should have stayed there forever. Thank you for doing this for us.

    1. Thank you Anne, I was thinking of seeing if we could go while you were there, but it didn’t work out. The portraits, I believe, were painted onto the walls. It was lots of different rooms. I think because it is a public building it can’t stay there. The artist, Rone, does these sorts of things in other places too, though this is the first time I have seen one of them.
