The Light in Winter 2012

The Light in Winter is a yearly festival in Melbourne celebrating the Winter Solstice. Local and international artists, designers, architects, filmmakers and multicultural groups come together to create a month-long program of light sculptures, talks, events, workshops, and performances.

Close Encounters: A giant UFO floating in Federation Square.The curved mirrors underneath reflect the world around it and LED messages circle the circumference, inviting and responding to public text messages.  Artwork by Jordana Maisie.

Literature vs Traffic: Transforming the Square’s busy walkways with thousands of pre-loved, reclaimed books and journals, to create a living, light-filled installation especially for Melbourne. Artwork by Luzinterruptus.
