BEAMS Art Festival is an annual, one-night only celebration of movement, form, sound and colour in the back lanes and streets of Chippendale, Sydney. The festival showcases a spectrum of the arts by Sydney’s best creative talents, set to inspire minds and stimulate conversation.
Our studio was invited to create a site-specific art installation within the grounds of Central Park, following the theme of ‘Utopia’. In collaboration with the talents of Electrolight, our team created ‘Lumessence’; a mysterious yet playful, bioluminescent urban threshold that inhabited the water at Chippendale Green. The artwork involves a series of weighted anchors holding individual, end and side emitting fibres in their desired locations while foam floats secured each fibre just below the surface of the water.
