do wonder think wonder about wonder contact wonder

a light pour

A Light Pour is comprised of one hundred thirty optical fibres hung from a single illuminated cloud enclosed in a barge floating on the Yarra River. A cascade of light is created by crimping the fibre. A rain storm of light floats indoors and the river.

The order of sky, water and the land is shifted in the juxtaposition of technology, craft, and nature. These hydroluminescent installations take us away from the everyday world; offering us a different perspective on the small things in our lives and make us smile. Fish become more than zodiacs in the sky – they swim in it – while rain clouds come indoors to deliver raindrops of light.
