The Guardians are ancient observers of light’s passage through the world. Over time they have evolved to soak up light, hold onto it and gently release it when night’s darkness lingers and the equilibrium between light and dark is frayed. Their constantly unfurling foliage undergoes a constant colour metamorphosis.
Seek solace in these stately Guardians as they look over Melbourne’s beloved Block Arcade.
Where: The Block Arcade (Collins Street Melbourne)
An overhead floating landscape of Banksias creates an ever-changing and vivid colour landscape. Light interacts with the Banksia leaves as they reflect, diffract and transmit light. The leaves are arranged as in nature (via the Fibonacci arrangement) so as to maximise their contact with light.
Reflect on nature’s way of capturing light at Howey Place
Where: Howey Place (Little Collins Street entry Melbourne)
An overhead floating landscape of large prominent flowers with dragonfly inspired petals gently activate and meander, conjuring up highly vivid colours. Altering one’s vantage point of the flowers alters their colour palette creating hues of purples, yellows, blues and reds that blend into each other with the passage of time.
