Ample Projects

Combining LED lighting and control technology, state of the art 3D design software, mechanical flippers, artisanal steel, fabric and working talents of traditional Chinese Lantern makers. Ample Projects created this entirely hand made Sea Turtle in 2016 for Taronga Conservation Society’s Centenary Year Parade, and the award winning Taronga Vivid Sydney Precincts 2016 - 2019.

Re-skinned in custom printed fabrics inspired by the drawings of NSW school kids in 2018, Ample’s majestic Sea Turtle highlights the extraordinary beauty of these endangered species, and the delicate balance that must be protected in our ocean ecosystems and habitats.

From the ancient geology of the Aussie Bush to a single tree in an urban jungle, across the expansive deep blue of our oceans and seas to the rich forest ecosystems of wild Sumatra. This Vivid Sydney, Taronga Zoo is shining a Lights For the Wild. We share this planet with some amazing wildlife. However, right now, their wild homes are under threat and they need our help more than ever.
