Hoisted (South Bank)

The latest version of Hoisted was flying high on the side of QPAC at South Bank Parklands, as part of MoB's Brisbane Art & Design Festival.

Hoisted is a large-scale projected interactive intervention exploring the recognition of sovereignty for the natural world, honouring the installation site's native flora and fauna.

Participants celebrated the plants and animals of South Bank and the Brisbane River by creating flags with their phones on our Hoisted flag building app, then watched them fly 20 meters high overlooking the city.
