Getting There

After every storm, there’s a rainbow…

Sky Castle, a creative partnership between Fed Square and ENESS, has breezed into Fed Square to celebrate blue skies ahead. And due to popular demand it’s been extended.

Sky Castle is a dreamy, interactive sound and light installation, featuring a cluster of inflatable arches that span in colourful symphony across Fed Square.

As people¬† move through the arches, their movement powers and progresses the melodic xylophone soundscape and stimulates colour changes in each arch ‚Äď evocative of the joy and hope that rainbows bring after every storm.

*Sky Castle has now concluded*
