White Night Melbourne Installations

White Night Melbourne 2017 kinetic sculpture installations

White Night commissioned the installation of two large kinetic sculptures for the February 2017 event.  Spherophyte was installed on a grassy hill at Birrarung Marr with views of the Art Centre and the city while Nebulous was set between two grand buildings, the classical Royal Exhibition Building and the ultra modern Melbourne Museum in Carlton.

Please see below for slideshows of the event, construction and installation, a video by White Night about the making of the pieces, and some video of the complete sculptures set up for testing.  Video from the night to follow soon!
