Skunk Control at Gertrude Street Festival

The Gertrude Street Projection Festival is celebrating its seventh year as one of Melbourne's most visible and accessible free large scale art events.

From 18 to 27 July, Gertrude Street will be lit up with grand visions from talented projection artists.

Victoria University's own Skunk Control, a group of engineers and scientists from the College of Engineering and Science, feature in the 2014 program with their artwork Pestilent protrusions.

Skunk Control is a group of engineers, educators and scientists from the college of Engineering and Science at Victoria University. The communication of science through art and art through science via stories and spectacle that excited us in our formative years is what Skunk Control explores.

Their agenda is to create art that engages, that taunts its audience to look deeper and to prompt inquiry.

Skunk Control collectively run diverse community outreach programs and community based general science units and are a part of the team that run the university’s Foundation Studies program.

Festival details

The Festival runs over ten evenings, from 18 to 27 July 2014.

Projections screen each night of the festival from 6pm til midnight.

Skunk Control's work will be shown at Rose Chong Costumiers, 218 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy.
