The Light in Winter festival will be casting a warm glow across Fed Square with art installations, music and colour throughout June. The program directed by Robyn Archer, will be exploring the power of the voice and the helix as the symbol of life.
The centrepiece will be a brand new installation artwork from Bruce Ramus, called the Helix Tree. A spiralling network of steel and light will be activated by the voices of the crowd each night at dusk. Community choirs will also assemble at the base to use their voices to activate the sound-responsive artwork. The tree is even set to have its own activation-anthem, with Melbourne singer and composer, Lou Bennett collaborating with community groups to compose the piece. An Indigenous campfire will be continually burning, and there will also be a Solstice Celebration from Thursday 20 June through to Saturday 22 June.
