Indigenous design thinking conversations

Nimrod Wies

ENESS is a multidisciplinary design studio working at the intersection of art and technology. Creative Director and co-founder Nimrod Weis leads a team of artists, developers and industrial designers who deeply explore artistic and technological methods, mixing installation art, light and technology to create meaningful interactive experiences such as Bunjil’s Wings at Bunjilaka, Melbourne Museum. Bunjil’s Wings was inspired by the notion of continuity and the omnipresent nature of creation, the centrepiece of this experience is a large kinetic sculpture. The kinetic form symbolises Bunjil the Creator, a wedged-tailed eagle in flight.  It is 2.2m in width, mirroring the size and majestic nature of the wedge tail eagle, and is in constant motion.  The moving form shows the wings of a bird in flight yet also reflects a universal motion seen throughout nature.
