The Shadow Trees, Public Art

At the historical convergence of Melbourne’s most iconic streets, Bourke and Collins, a compelling public art project has been installed. Ramus was approached by renowned artist Sally Smart and Lend Lease development to illuminate her newest work Shadow Trees.

Sally Smarts’ Shadow Trees inhabit the site by creating new, different shapes and spaces within it. This visibility has been amplified at night through illumination via an integrated lighting design from Ramus.

The lighting design supports the vision of the artist and continues the shadowy colourful expression into the night, which, in terms of safety and activation, has transformed the perception of the precinct.
