Saturday night downtown Sydney came alive with art installations, music and dance called Lumiere. Not your usual Charlotte St. evening but even the rain couldn't keep people away.
A pic of a busy Charlotte St. full of people and traffic.
Empty store fronts were filled with video and photo exhibits.
Midnight Swim in Phosphorescence : Having combed the seaside for ocean-sourced materials, the artists will reflect on this haiku as they try to invoke the sensation of an ocean swim under a starry sky.
Catherine Moir paints in Black light.
Kent Senacal"s VIP Table, double dare ya to take a seat. :)
laura Moore's light show from a tv and toilet paper rolls, Very Cool!
Shari Macleod's woven creatures. This little dude doesn't look like he trusts the cross walk lines and he's checking good and hard for traffic. ;)
Sidney Ried animated the parking meters with her knitted creatures.
I couldn't find a sign for this artist's work but I did marvel that it was entirely constructed from burrs. Can you say Ouch!
This piece is by Onni Nordman and hung in the main window of CBCCD. I had a hard time with this pic because there was a light bulb in constant motion in front of the face creating an hypnotic effect.
There were so many more exhibits and some I may have not fully grasped although I enjoyed the experience and opportunity to view them. The night as a whole was a great success I thought and I hope they do it all again next year. If you didn't attend you missed something wonderful so don't miss it next year if we are all so lucky.
