Bill Viola has developed a unique body of work since his first experiments with film and video in the early 1970s and is celebrated today as one of the world's leading video artists. For Project 17, two works from Viola's 2005 series The Tristan Project were presented nightly at St Saviour's Church in Redfern, Sydney, in April and May 2008. The darkened church was lit with a larger-than-life projection of Fire Woman and Tristan's Ascension (The Sound of a Mountain Under a Waterfall), mesmerising images of catharsis and ascension accompanied by resonating sound

Bill Viola is considered a pioneer in the medium of video art and is internationally recognised as one of today's leading artists. He has been instrumental in the establishment of video as a vital form of contemporary art and, in so doing, has helped to greatly expand its scope in terms of technology, content and historical reach. In collaboration with the Melbourne Festival and Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Project 21 presented Viola's haunting video installations Fire Woman and Tristan's Ascension inside a church in Parkville. A second work, The Raft, was also presented at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image as part of the project.
