Perth Festival 2013 – Scattered Light
During the long weekend, Lily, DH and I went to Kings Park to see Jim Campbell’s light installation Scattered Light as part of the Perth Festival. When we first saw the lights peer out from under the trees, Lily got very excited and claimed there were ‘lots of stars’!
1600 light bulbs suspended from a wire flicker on and off at what first seems random, but as you move further away you notice that the light bulbs are acting like pixels on a TV forming a ‘cinematic experience’ of people walking (sadly I couldn’t capture this on my camera with the low light).
Now I’m not the type to get too artsy fartsy and analyse art to death, but this was pretty cool and interactive enough to interest the kids.
If you have missed out on the Perth Festival, you can still catch the films until the 14 April.
