FROM THE STUDIO//: The great bard once wrote – ‘let their be light!’ And so is the true of our current MGPO project keeping us bright-eyed and bushy tailed this month. Melbourne’s GPO is shining a whole new light on Melbourne this summer. Each night from sundown, Melbourne’s GPO goes up in lights to celebrate its recent restoration works. The display features 2,900 LEDs creating a glowing dance as they change colour, synchronize with one another and intermix to create a kaleidoscope of pastel shades. The permanent, green-friendly project will run on just 725 watts in its entirety. That’s less energy than it takes to power 15 household downlights. We say yes to an artful installation that is also sustainably conscious.
Don’t take our word for it, take a summer night’s stroll and check out the breathtaking spectacle all for yourself.
