Light Hearts, Federation Square

At the centre of Federation Square’s The Light in Winter Festival 2011, was Light Hearts, a 13m high pyramid designed and produced by Ramus and our first large-scale communal art project. Constructed of metal scaffolding and adorned with salvaged City of Melbourne street lights and Led happy tubes, Light Hearts evolved throughout the month with the additions of beautiful hand made lanterns, yarn bombing and performances. The interior of the pyramid became an active workshop space and a nightly programmed light show provided a focal point for the festival, and an opportunity for the Melbourne community to contribute to the piece.
