This year, we are assisting Bettina, Grace, Colin and Ales with luminaire housings for 50 umbrellas which will be installed in Kendall Lane, The Rocks, Sydney from 6pm on Friday 26th of May 2017.
About the installation:
Under My Umbrella
Artists: Bettina Easton, Colin Shum, Grace Tham, Ales Vasenda
Under My Umbrella invites you to dream and dance under a glowing canopy as it sways gently in the wind.
The canopy is made up of a mass of magical umbrellas that dim and glow as you dance beneath them. This whimsical installation also casts a sea of stars on the laneway below, enveloping dancers in light.
Visitors can download the XIMtroller app to choreograph the canopy and the installation also communicates to people’s smart devices when they are nearby via iBeacon and PhyWeb.
The installation has a simple message: “Come join us and dance the night away – Under My Umbrella!”
