‘Catch and Release’ activates the Avon Precinct by offering inviting spaces to both see and be a part of creative events. The audience is blurred as the public and artists come together to be the art and see the art. In order to activate the Avon Precinct we proposed developing outdoor equivalents of the surrounding cultural institution’s creative spaces. We used lighting, paving and furnishings to define different event spaces. To play on the concept of Catch & Release the looping pathway is lined with lighting which responds to movement, like a ripple effect and intensifies as people move towards the different event platforms.
