Luminous Flight suspends five brilliantly coloured kites above a small lane near Circular Quay.

The kites are constructed from LED tubes and luminous fabric, with free-flowing tails that rustle in the wind giving the illusion of movement. When viewers wave their hands towards the tail they activate a chase of colour and patterns within the kite.

Traditionally the kite has taken many forms and purposes — from lifting heavy objects, to studying weather patterns and transporting spiritual messages to the gods. Around the world, the art of kite flying has been a carefree childhood pastime for thousands of years.
