Cathedral of Lights at The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney was my favorite installation this year. As a part of 3-week festival of lights, this 70-meter tunnel illuminated by tens and thousands of LED lights was placed along the waterside, a few minutes away from the iconic Opera House.
I absolutely loved the idea and I could see everyone being excited about this gorgeous piece of art.
Artist: Mandylights (Richard Neville (United Kingdom))
Collaborators: Daniel Mercer (Australia) / Shane Radcliffe (Australia) / Andy Romanowski (Poland)
“The artists draw the analogy that, just like a strong community or congregation, the sculpture is made up of many smaller parts that work together to achieve a stronger, unified output.”

The Opera house dazzled in the dark of the night. We got a lovely view of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge from the entrance to Royal Botanic Garden. Before stepping into the light tunnel, I watched the laser projection on Opera house, MCA Building and Custom House.
