Harts Mill re-animated
Back in 2009, the iconic Harts Mill in Port Adelaide was transformed into a light and sound spectacular by Illuminart. It was the first time I had ever seen projected art on such a scale and I was blown away.
Currently they have produced 7 chapters of this new ground breaking story that is based on the history and future of the Mill and the Port River, but they need some crowd funding to get the projection extended to a full 30 minutes.
The amount they need is just $8000 and the deadline for pledges is the 14th December 2013 at 12pm EST.
I know I'd love to see the full 30 minutes and am encouraging all South Australians to get behind this Pozible crowd funding campaign.
You can pledge amounts from as little as $1. But, for a little more, you will be rewarded for your generosity. There are 10 levels of love to choose from. Why not pledge a bit more and be a VIP at the event?

About Harts Mill
Harts Mill, built in 1855, is one of Australia's oldest buildings and one of Port Adelaide's most famous landmarks. It's situated between St Vincent Street and Mundy St. The Mill was built by Captain John Hart (25 February 1809 – 28 January 1873) who was Premier of South Australia. His flour mill at the Port was regarded as one of the best, and "Hart's Flour" commanded the highest prices in Australia
Illuminart is a South Australian Arts company founded in 2007, with major accomplishments including the Lipson Street projection show "Port Inhabited" in 2011, "The Ribbon" in Murray Bridge in 2010, "Fractured Heart Interactive" at VIVID 2012, "No Boundaries" projection onto Dame Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre in 2012, and "Luminous Hall" for University of Western Australia's Centenary in 2013.

What is Pozible?
Pozible is a crowd fundraising website where creative projects and ideas are funded by "switched on consumers, fans, peers and like-minded strangers"
I believe that the empy land near Hart's Mill is the perfect place to display the soon arriving "City of Adelaide" ship, and a much better place the area at Largs where the SA Government proposes to place it. This would create a perfect historical precinct - a tourist attraction that would rival Fremantle and complement the Maritime Museum, and Light House, and the tall ships of Port Adelaide. Hart's Mill is magnificent even without illumination - imagine the possibilities afforded by illuminating the Mill and the City of Adelaide - perhaps a light show displaying the glory of this clipper ship as it once was.
