Carla Zimbler bends light across architecture and soaks sculptural forms in vivid textures as a live performative experience. Her installations explore fluidity to shift perspective and redefine spatial, spiritual and emotional boundaries, acting as both conduit and gateway to the otherworldly.
Carla invites audiences to examine ephemera and intricate micro/macro details of our biosphere. Utilising experimental film, photogrammetry and generative 3D software to explore phenomena, bodies are drawn into immersive spaces where sound-responsive visuals expand, burst and dissolve. The intimate, experiential world-building elements of her practice ebb and flow between the familiar and uncanny, navigating digitally modified ecosystems in a lucid dream-like state.
Carla’s visual work has been featured at Sydney Opera House, National Gallery of Australia, Arts House, VIVID, ACMI, Reykjavík Winter Lights Festival, Distortion Ø and Phoenix Central Park. Carla has been associated with The Centre for Projection Art, MESS Studio, SÍM Residency, The Australian Pavilion at Venice Biennale, World Pride Sydney and LungA Art Festival. Carla has also been afiliated with Apple, Adobe, Mixcloud, W-Hotel, Red Bull, Boiler Room and Bar Campari.
