I’m posting this as I eat breakfast, so my Canberra peeps can see this for themselves asap. It’s still running tonight the 19th of March, from dark (about 8pm) until early in the morning.
There’s a whole bunch of stuff on – I will be going to Skyfire (a large free fireworks display set to music) tonight (and blogging about it next week), and a lot of it is free.
So what am I so excited about?
Last night CJ and I went and saw the seriously awesome light sculptures that have been engineered for several of Canberra’s best-known buildings – Old and New Parliament House, The National Gallery, and the National Library.
Each location had giant projectors set up with a series of either moving or still images. Gonna stop explaining now – we were particularly taken with the National Library, which usually looks like this:
But last night it was all dressed up:
We knew it was going to be good, and it was gasp-worthy. We also watched Old Parliament House for a while (but from farther away).
Play along at home recommendation? DO IT!
