Luminous


Luminous at Darling Quarter – the world’s largest interactive light installation – brings light and playfulness to the community.

Constructed from 557 solar-powered LED lights, it’s set across the enormous 150-metre façade of the building overlooking Darling Quarter.

Luminous can be enjoyed live from 6pm each night. On Monday to Thursday and Sundays, the content is pre-programmed by its creator, Bruce Ramus, with a light show that inspires imagination and instils awe.

On Friday and Saturday nights, the power of Luminous is handed to the people, with the general public able to take control of the interactive consoles on the two Village Greens. Here, visitors can ‘finger-paint’, play games, and take full command over this vast interactive digital light display, to create their own unique light shows.
