SYDNEY.- Customs House is aglow with creative light artworks as part of Smart Light Sydney which runs until 14 June. Smart Light Sydney showcases dynamic light art sculptures and is the only major international lighting event driven by energy conscious and innovative design to recognise the importance of lighting design in cities and its role in the city nightscape.
On Customs House Square, Lumenocity features a series of coloured lanterns representing an energy consumption map of the city's buildings. Doves that Cry in the Red Room, is a light and sound installation inspired by the 'drawing room' and featuring LED-lit recycled light fixture reflectors that represent doves flocking to the black piano.
Smart Light Fields is a live mapping of the movement of festival goers across Circular Quay. Also at Customs House, suspended in the atrium, is the Green Void, a 19-metre tall lycra installation illuminated with daylight by day and LEDs by night.
Lord Mayor Clover Moore MP said; "We're really proud to sponsor Smart Light Sydney and the fact that these imaginative and beautiful art installations will be powered by low-energy lighting."
Smart Light Sydney utilises clever design, innovative technology, reusable materials and energy efficiency, and is a feature of Vivid Sydney (26 May-14 June), a unique new public festival of music, light and ideas developed by Events NSW.
