Illuminate by Daniel Mercer & Richard Neville
LOOK UP! illuminate draws on the collective power of numerous tiny, highly efficient light sources to create this appealing lighting design using less power than the existing lights for The Rocks Square. Some 140 hanging tubes are filled with individually controllable LEDs producing 9000 pixels of light, re-lighting this space with continuously changing colours and patterns that never produce the same look twice.
Richard Neville is a young Australian lighting designer whose work spans professional theatre, concert, television, dance party, recital and corporate projects around the world. Richard has collaborated with Daniel Mercer – one of the founding directors of Australian lighting and visual design company Mandylights and Alex Grieson a young creative designer.

Officers House by Vessi Ivanova & Thomas Stevens
This handsome heritage building was the Officers House in colonial Sydney days. The artists have chosen to paint it with light colour from inside out, creating a dynamic and emotive artwork on the fa├žade. The play of shadows and colourful light are achieved with varying light distribution fittings projected on the vertical surfaces and are set for you to see this architecture in a surprising new way. ENJOY!
Northrop Lighting Design Studio and Lightingroup have collaborated to create this installation. Studio manager and multiple lighting design award winner, Vessi Ivanova and designer Thomas Stevens worked in partnership with manufacturers of Lightingroup.

The Georges by Gordon Watson
This colour changing design pays tribute to the heritage of the buildings, using the waves of colour to highlight both the diversity of the residents who lived here over the years and the ever changing population as older residents move on and new dwellers arrive.
