TURNER made its mark on one of Sydney’s biggest events with a stunning display of dancing lights.
As a part of VIVID 2017 which attracted more than 2.31 million people, “Supernova” as a miniaturised astronomical event was displayed at Bulletin Pl in the CBD.
The Vivid installation was created collaboratively by Turners’s team of staff.
Supernova represents the sudden and bright birth of a star, which then fades back into a milky way’ of shifting canopies.
“Supernova” is a starry night sky made of 45 recycled umbrellas.
The umbrellas open and close exposing glowing material. When they fully open, there will be a flash of bright light as the supernova is revealed.
