Moo Moo MOO!

The inaugural Art in the Dark event was held in Ponsonby's Western Park on the 16th of October.  A wonderful night was had by all who attended as we wandered around a transformed urban space full of interactive installations by a selection of local artists.

Architects and collaborators Hamish Stirrat, Jun Tsujimoto and Callum Dowie created the stunning Moo Chandelier, pictured here, for the event.  Hamish, Jun and Callum transformed just over 900 recycled plastic milk bottles into a shimmering, radiant installation that was suspended between the trees in Western Park.  The chandelier was lit with an RGB LED lighting system supplied and programmed by Modus.  

Congratulations to the artists and the team at Art in the Dark for creating a fantastic community event - we look forward to seeing what happens next year!
