The Light in Winter 2013

The Light in Winter is an annual festival held during winter in Melbourne each year. The festival celebrates winter with wonderful artistic sculptures, usually best enjoyed at night when the sculptures become illuminated.

This year's key attraction is The Helix Tree, designed by Melbourne-based illumination designer Bruce Ramos. The Helix Tree is a 13m high steel structure with interactive illumination that responds to sound. The tree varies in colour and intensity based on the volume and pitch of the sound it hears.

Various choirs from around Melbourne have been invited to sing under the tree and demonstrate this interactive display of sound and light.
