Luminarium - Architects of Air ♥

I cannot wait to go and visit the Luminarium in January! It will be installed on the Sydney Opera House forecourt for nearly all of January as part of Sydney Festival.

It looks truly amazing - an inflated world filled with light and tunnels and cathedral like spaces. Apparently it only takes 20 minutes to inflate, is hand made by a team of 5 people over 4 months and is glued together! It can withstand about 100 inflations and after a couple of years is shredded up and recycled.

It does remind me a little of Olafur Eliasson's amazing installations that were at the MCA early in 2010. These images below are from Eliasson's exhibition. There is definitely a similarity don't you think? I loved that exhibition too - it was an absolute treat for the senses.


I'm off to buy my tickets now - only $10ea. Total bargain!
For tickets of your own go to the Sydney Opera House website ~ its called "Mirazozo Architects of Air"...
