inspired by the beautiful maritime industrial architecture in the old covered ‘finger’ wharves at Walsh Bay, Sydney. WE discovered that parts of this area of the harboUr are up to 30 metres deep and that the wharves are supported by magnificent native Australian turpentine trees. The lighting installation illuminates the ‘underwater forest’ that exists beneath the iconic wharves, highlighting its intricate patterns and textures aiming to create a spectacular celebration of the beauty of the trees as they rest in their alien and watery habitat. a cycle WAS CREATED of light reflecting the different states of illumination in a real Australian forest – rain, bushfire, pink sunrise and orange sunset.
