Symbolic of change, creativity, soul freedom, joy and colour, 180 butterflies make their debut in Australia to create a mesmerising masterpiece of light and transformation.

Set in the artist’s site-specific display, On the Wings Of Freedom comprises an array of RGB LEDs which are individually addressable and choreographed for rich lighting effects based on audience interaction.

Fresh from the UK, Aether & Hemera’s On the Wings Of Freedom represents transformation and freedom across all cultures. The flutter of wings, movement of colour and suggestion of shape shifting point to the potential for change and cultural evolution. On display in ‘Bright Cities’, the butterflies like to feature in places where people grow culturally, socially and broaden their minds.
