The Light Man at the 2012 Gertrude St Projection Festival

Before we cast video projections onto buildings on Melbourne's Gertrude St there was Hugh McSpedden's fantastic light shows.

At the 2012 Gertrude St Projection Festival, Hugh arrived, an unofficial contributing artist, and parked a block away from the fixed exhibits and fired up his rig direct from a van and small generator.
