Where better than the middle of the city to offer a place of collective mindfulness? Using a geometric array of rotating convex mirrors suspended beneath the freeway overpass provides an unexpected multi-sensory spectacle for people below.

Seeing yourselves and your surroundings reflected in each of the mirrors offers a sense of seemingly infinite multiplied perspectives. Adding to the surprise, this meditative kinetic sculpture is simultaneously an unorthodox musical instrument. An original composition reverberates throughout the space creating a dynamic sound bath that deepens the experience.

Resonance transforms a slice of Darling Harbour into a space of wonder and contemplation.

“The opportunity to listen and reflect captures us in a moment of mindfulness and presence …. expanding our consciousness as friends and strangers come together in an innovative experience. Life unfolds in the present. But so often, we let the moment slip away, allowing time to rush past us, squandering the precious seconds of our lives as we worry about the future and ruminate about the past. The fundamental intention of this work is to encourage you to engage in the here and now.” – Studio John Fish
