Sunsuper Night Sky

4 – 26 Sept

Past Event

The night sky is our canvas for a laser and light installation.

World Premiere

Robin Fox

For millennia, people have looked to the night sky for solace, inspiration, meaning and guidance. Sunsuper Night Sky heralds the beginning of a new era, a time to come back together and make a connection.

Every Friday and Saturday night of the Festival, buildings across Brisbane’s skyline will play host to an interconnecting and pulsing laser beam installation set to an ethereal soundtrack.

Created by Australia’s most renowned audio-visual artist, Robin Fox, this exquisite light installation will be visible for miles from hundreds of vantage points across Brisbane. View Sunsuper Night Sky from the street, on your evening walk or even by CityCat. Cast your eyes up, contemplate life and wonder at the beauty of our world.


Warning: for those with photosensitive epilepsy, please be aware that this event involves pulsing laser beams. Read more on what to expect here.
