Vivid Sydney 2013
Created specifically for Vivid Sydney 2013, "The Luminiferous Aether" is an illuminated mural based on a Thai folk tale about how the moon came into being; a love story between the sun king and a beautiful princess, and how the stars arranged their happiness.
The title, "The Luminiferous Aether", is taken from a scientific term that was used in the 19th century to describe the substance which was believed to allow light to travel through space. The mural is intended to be that medium through which light, in a metaphorical and physical sense, travels to the audience.
