Articulated Intersect

Dark MOFO - Articulated Intersect

Friday night signaled the opening of ‘Articulated Intersect‘ – a large-scale light installation which is part of the fabulous Dark Mofo Festival in Hobart.

You’re in control when 18 powerful lights pierce the Hobart sky above Sullivans Cove from dusk until dawn. Six mechanical levers are set around the waterfront; as you move a lever, three robotic searchlights create a compound beam high above. Direct the lights to wherever you choose. As the different beams cross in the sky, they resist your control and pulsate autonomously in the darkness.

I rugged up Poppy and James and met Cath at T42 for front row seats.  Boy oh boy – what a spectacle.

We wandered over to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery that was a hive of activity with live music, art and food.  I loved seeing so many families out in the middle of winter, marveling at their fabulous city.

On Saturday night Nick took us out on the boat for a different perspective from the water.  Once again you will have to excuse the quality of some of these photos – it was a difficult feat capturing moving lights, in the rain, at night on a boat!
