Wander from Freyberg Place to Khartoum Place to follow a trail of six art and light installations created by artist Angus Muir. Enjoy the unique daytime experience of these fun and artistic artworks that really come to life at night - including:
Filament - inspired by the Pohutukawa frond, this abstracted artwork consists of 25 filaments sweeping out of a steel base to a height of five meters. Find this installation at Freyberg Place.
Flamingos - these uniquely designed artworks are larger than life and their big bodies are illuminated and programmed for a fun display of light. Find this installation on the steps at Freyberg Place.
Hanging Orbs - softly glowing and colour changing balls in varying sizes hung in trees along Lorne Street and from a large streetlight pole in Khartoum Place.
Polar - displayed for the first time anywhere in the world, this artwork is inspired by the magnetic fields surrounding the earth. 25 large LED neon rings are cantilevered off a central post – with over 6500 lights inside the rings. An ever-changing light show is choreographed and plays back on the neon rings. Find this installation in Khartoum Place.
Shish-Ka-Buoy - this artwork is a real crowd pleaser and has been exhibited internationally including Singapore and most recently London. Each tower of globes is on a steel base plate and thousands of LEDs create a whirl of colour and beautiful spherical gradients. The installation is made from fully recyclable polyethylene. Find this installation in Khartoum Place.
