Image. Posts of varied heights form three long zig-zag ‘fences’ that stand parallel with  two paths running between them. Bathed in tinted light, the posts’ mirrored cladding reflects their surroundings, including passing visitors and each other, creating changing patterns across their surfaces.Triangulum installation

Triangulum is an interactive light installation that is beautiful by day and by night. The work is a maze of pathways that people can either wander through or alongside. Drawing its name from the Latin for triangle, and also referencing the Triangulum Galaxy, this work certainly seems to have celestial origins with its twenty seven thousand points of light.

Triangulum can be approached from many different angles and the experience and view is always different and changing. Viewed from afar, Triangulum frames and segments Sydney Harbour Bridge. From other angles, it frames people wandering within it. Interaction takes place on an analogue level as people’s views are captured and distorted. The posts are semi-reflective and the corner facets are filled with LED pixels. By day the lights are invisible and at night the light shines through the glass.
