MYSTERY OF CREATION by Heinz Kasper
Music: Robert Faldner
Animation: Lea Nagano
check out the live installation on the cadmans building:
Artists throughout history have been inspired by the mystery of creation. The enigma of birth and death, of coming and going, and of the transformation embodied in both life and the passing of life have all been the foundation for intriguing works. Vivid Sydney continues this tradition with Mystery of Creation (Fragments of the Seasons).
This poem of light and sound is a visual and aural installation projecting nature's changes onto a concrete facade:
Flowers blossom, only to wilt; trees wither, only to grow anew. The wind whispers in the tree; its leaves embody alchemy in the transformation of living colour, from green into yellow and red; leaves dance and drop off in a storm; and once again you see a bare tree.
The installation is a profoundly natural, visual sanctuary that offers you an escape from the everyday urban challenges of Sydney. Dive into the here and now – where inspiration becomes light, light becomes image, and both combine with a mellifluous musical accompaniment to represent the cycle of the seasons.
