The Luminous Gallery lights, arranged like stars in the ground, are a reflection of the night sky. Indigenous navigation, which laid story telling onto the stars to communicate pathways across the land, has inspired these lights.
Each luminous gallery has five central lights, one for each town between Pioneer Bay and Coronet Bay. These town-based constellations are configured like a map of the towns along the waterline, viewed as if in the stars looking down. If standing on the light of the town you are in, you can orient yourself to the direction of the neighbouring towns.
The Luminous Galleries have been designed to encourage journeys between the participating towns, and to provide places that inspire everyone to ‘have a go’ at creating a little night-time magic. The gallery is waiting for your luminous sculptures so that it can be an ever changing canvas of ideas.
