La Lune

Last night was a little bit fun, I went to see La Lune: Energy Producing Art at Long Reef!

It is a great free art initiative by Warringah council in conjunction with the Environmental Research Initiative for Art, College of Fine Arts, and University of New South Wales located along a beautiful seaside walk on Long Reef Headland in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. The event is curated by Allan Giddy and features light sculptures by local and international artists in response the surrounding environment.

“La Lune further explores the idea of energy in art, expanding from purely solar, to energy as it is incident on site in any form. Our fantastic venue on the northern beaches is heavily impacted by energy systems, specifically tidal, solar and wind. Most of the artworks installed physically produce energy, and in these small energy systems the balance of production and load is crucial. In many ways they mirror larger scale energy production in our society, in individual homes, urban centres and countries, as all can be considered closed systems of production and load,” said Allan Giddy.

It is a great event for the whole family, the trail walk is 2km so if you are bringing little ones pack the pram so you can easily traverse the full event. The event runs from 5pm to 9pm each night until May 18. We arrived at 5pm and getting to watch the full moon rise was pretty spectacular, I only wish I remembered to bring my SLR to capture it properly for you! So please excuse the iPhone pics…
