Mirazozo the Luminarium

View Album


Today, your eyes are in for quite a treat! The forecourt at the Sydney Opera House is currently home to a luminarium constructed by Architects of Air. What is a luminarium you ask?

Well, we would describe it as a giant psychedelic bouncy-castle for adults! Okay, so you can’t really bounce around in it, but it was all so tempting to throw ourselves at the kaleidoscopic air-filled walls!

Their website describes it as “a sculpture people enter to be moved to a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and colour.”

The handy brochure given to us at the entrance has this to say:

Mirazozo luminarium is a sculpture people enter to be immersed in radiant light and colour… Mirazozo is inspired by nature, geometry and Islamic architecture. Its original feature is the “illuminated seam” that is found in all the principal domes. The luminosity of light and colour inside the luminaria is created purely by the daylight shining through the coloured plastic. The luminaria are completely hand made…

Stepping out of the blazing mid-day sun and into the cool, colourful, creative space inside the luminarium felt like stepping through a portal to another dimension. Or was it an alien spaceship? The calming music and vibrant lighting made for quite an immersive experience.

The only thing we needed to complete the ambiance were some glowsticks and some groovilicious trance beats, am I right?!

All in all, it was a very satisfying visual feast and presented us with heaps of fun photographic opportunities! We definitely recommend having a look, but if you’re not in Sydney or are reading this after 27 January, then you’ll just have to check out the rest of our photos!
