- Architects of Air’s luminarium Mirazozo - 3 – 27 January 2011
Architects of Air’s luminarium Mirazozo
Mirazozo is a dazzling maze of winding paths and soaring domes. The large-scale inflatable sculpture will take over the Sydney Opera House Forecourt.
Constructed of translucent vinyl, the multi-sensory space welcomes and inspires everyone who journeys inside. Islamic art and architecture, Archimedean solids and Gothic cathedrals meld together to form an awe-inspiring monument to the unexpected beauty of colour and light.
Built in 2010 and when erected measuring 60m x 18m by 10m, Mirazozo makes the most extensive use of the “illuminated seam” first explored in Architects of Air’s previous work, Amococo. The internal pattern of neon-lit seams creates a meditative configuration, where perception and reality can shift. It is the same effect created by the geometric design of Islamic art and architecture.
