For Vivid Sydney 2019, King Street Wharf celebrates the undeniable universality of perfect geometry with Tetra and vibrant light displays along the promenade.

Tetra is a luminous representation of the Star Tetrahedron found in ‘sacred geometry’, which is an inspired and complex system of ancient universal patterns that are found in design and architecture as well as in music and nature. You might have seen these patterns expressed in temples, monuments, labyrinths and mandalas.

Tetra is a three dimensional ‘Star of David’ that is formed by interlocking two equilateral tetrahedrons. This Star Tetrahedron is revered by devotees of sacred geometry as the geometric and energetic representation of heaven and earth, male and female, and the human body. The infinite universe is said to be contained within the star’s 24 perfect triangular faces. To some, it is seen as a divine vehicle of light. Its name – Merkaba – literally translates to Light-Spirit-Body, a chariot on which the soul ascends to the heavens.

Made of light and energy itself, this contemporary recreation brings these ancient ideals to life in vibrant displays of colour and pattern reflecting both the diversity of the human spirit and infinite wonder of the universe.
