In keeping with their years of collaborations with the world of art Australian luxury brand Scanlan & Theodore has partnered with the 18th Biennale of Sydney to present an incredible large-scale installation by artist Daan Roosegaarde.
Set in the Dogleg Tunnel on Cockatoo Island, the installation entitled ‘Dune’ is an interactive landscape which is over 40 metres long that is reactive to the behavior and movements of people that come close to it. Hundreds of sensors detect motion and sets off optical fibres that brighten and dim.
The brand has had a long standing passion for fostering innovative art, and has collaborated with other spectacular artists including Bill Henson, David Armstrong and Nan Goldin.
Says Gary Theodore (of Scanlan & Theodore) “Daan’s work appeals to us, as his practices thoughtfully examine the relationship between space, people and technology in the present moment. His work brings together and fosters a sense of contemporary community, allowing us to further explore the idea of art in relation to fashion and new media”.
You MUST watch the amazing video below and get yourselves down to Cockatoo Island to experience the Biennale which is on until the 16th of September.
