Aurora (2016) is a light installation that was created specifically for the BEAMS Arts Festival.
The LED lights line the “streamers” and provide a soft yet magnificent glow, reminiscent of the Aurora Australis. The site specific piece will light up the location that it inhabits, as LED lights flicker and change to the voices and presence of nearby festival goers. The lights connect to a sound sensor that detects changes in rhythm and volume and physically manifests it in changes to the lights. The work encapsulates the echoing vibrations and spirit of those surrounding the streets of Chippendale.
