White Night Melbourne

Melbourne’s first White Night couldn’t be considered anything but a roaring success. WN3With crowds lining the streets from dusk till dawn, there wasn’t an exhibition without hoards of people and no artist went unappreciated. It may be a bit of a dull pick, and not all that ‘hip’ but my favourite exhibition was Wonderland. Designed and installed by Australian company Electric Canvas, the moving illuminated images brought every day buildings to life in a vibrant and imaginative way. Iconic buildings such a Flinders Street Station not only lit the street, but played host to live music throughout the night creating a beautiful, buzzing venue.

WN4The Chapel next to St. Paul’s was another part of the stunning Wonderland exhibition. Rather than still colour, the entire front elevation was lit with a moving display, featuring organic, industrial and comical elements. The neon lighting was perfectly mapped onto the building, fantastically merging a 19th century structure with 21st century technology.
