Internationally renowned visual artist, Lindy Lee brings her stunning installation aboard Brisbane's Art Boat for a truly immersive, celestial art, light and sound experience. Intentionally slow to impart their secrets, Lindy's work is inspired by symbolic gestures and processes that call on the element of chance to produce a galaxy of images that embody the intimate connections between human existence and the cosmos.
The Spheres takes its cue from Ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, who speculated that celestial bodies caused vibrations as they coursed majestically through the heavens. Just as the vibrations of harp strings cause musical notes to reverberate, moons, stars and planets also reverberate to create harmonic sounds. Pythagoras termed this the ‘Music of the Spheres’.
Brisbane's Art Boat features the city's most unique on-water bar and performance program, with a curated program that responds to Lee's artwork, including an evocative soundscape by Yuggera and Turrbal man and Tribal Experiences Managing Director, Shannon Ruska and a specially commissioned sound work from Lawrence English. Lindy’s stunning installation also features a lighting design by Daniel Anderzipf.
The Spheres was created in our Brisbane workshop in close collaboration with the artist and funded by Art Makers.
"I want this to be a great celebration of Brisbane, and how it has wondrously and graciously stepped up to become a city with its own character.”Lindy Lee
