Parliamentary Triangle - 8pm till late
A key feature of Enlighten is the stunning architectural projections that transform the Parliamentary Triangle for nine nights. The Electric Canvas and selected artists will present site-specific designs across six iconic buildings: Australian Parliament House, Old Parliament House, National Library of Australia, Questacon, National Portrait Gallery and National Gallery of Australia.
Selected artists and the Academy of Interactive Entertainment have been mentored by The Electric Canvas, to transform and translate their own work into architectural projections. The resulting works by each artist have been inspired by the architecture of the buildings and informed by their own arts practice and themes within the program for Enlighten.
