Tumbalong Lights

Tumbalong Lights plays with the beauty of open space, light and the night sky. An exhibit of 32 dazzling beams of light moving through the night sky creating patterns as you walk between the raised lights.  Nestled within the vast Tumablong Green space at Darling Harbour, it sits in open space, reaching to the stars.

Gazing in to the sky as you walk between the parallel rows of suspended lights, one's eye gazes into the sky following the interweaving lines of light and colour. The colours and beams interact with one another and move seamlessly and uninterrupted into to space. Intricate programming showcases both the beauty of each single beam of light, and combinations of beams working together to create a beacon, as the light heads for the night sky and beyond.

Magicians of the Mist is the result of a passionate collaboration between artists, composers, engineers, fountaineer, pyrotechnicians and other leaders in their field to celebrate the power of creativity and innovation. This extraordinary work blurs the line between art and technology defining the digital era: 12 massive pumps throw 28 tonnes of water into the air every minute; huge projections shine on walls of water 60 metres wide and 40 metres high. Lasers, fountains, jets of flame, music, fireworks, fireballs, LEDs and searchlights are all controlled through a computer interface in the hands of a master fountaineer and laser artist. See what else is happening in Darling Harbour
