Like a futuristic Stonehenge, Specularity offers a unique visual experience that plays with one’s perception of space and time. In their Vivid Light debut, creative studio John Fish has created a walk-through installation in which the audience becomes part of the artwork. Reminiscent of ancient observatory structures such as Wurdi Youang on Wathaurong Country, this sculptural piece consists of two concentric circles of twelve mirrored pillars representing the months of the year and the hours of the day. In the centre, a large infinity cube, shimmering with mesmerising colour and depth, acts as ‘sun-like’ focal point. This light sculpture changes dramatically from day to night, reflecting both the beautiful surrounds of Sydney Harbour and festival attendees.
Specularity encourages both young and old to consider complex interlinking life cycles found in our natural world and to reflect on how we exist within these systems.
