Commemorative Projections in Parramatta ANZAC Day 2018
After arriving in Parramatta on Anzac Day evening, a friend and I walking through Centenary Square came across St Johns Anglican Cathedral Memorial Arch, covered in a river of red felt poppies, and a fantastic commemorative Centenary of Anzac WWI light display being projected against the wall of St Johns Church.
Included in the featured images illuminating the church wall were some on the arrival of the 1915 Coo-ee Recruitment March in Parramatta, and individual photographs of two of the Parramatta Coo-ees Oliver James HARMON and Cyril Roy MCMILLAN.
The animated projection installation, which had been prepared by Illuminart, was very well done, and amazingly, the eyes on the images of the individual men and women displayed blinked – several times!
We went back the following evening for a second look.
A Gallery of photographs from the commemorative projection, which was held from 16th to 27th April 2018, can be seen at https://illuminart.com.au/project/anzac-parramatta/
