Light Garden

Lead Artist: Simon Holden

Created with the help of our artistsic partners, the light garden is a concept installation. The idea is to create a new projection tapestry each time the Light Garden is created. Invited artists can choose the visual that each element will show, or how the elements are interacted with.

Multiple artists take different approaches, chosing to in fill the back ground, or just the shapes, and also incorporating cameras, sensors, and audio into their live compositions.

Queenstown Central Christmas Tree

Each year we create a bespoke dressing for the christmas tree. What will we come up with for this year?!

Trilogy

LUMA Heart

We wanted to create an “Instagram Moment” element for LUMA 2021. With the help of Angus Muir Design on fabrication, we came up with a fun concept that could be placed on the waterfront creating a beautiful setting for photographs and helping celebrate LUMA 2021.
