Discover Parko Techni 2019

30 Jun 2019

Shimmering silver light cascading down the face of the P1 Car Park, activated by light and breeze, is just one of the amazing art installations being featured as part of Parko Techni 2019, now on display at Sydney Olympic Park.

Four fabulous art installations will be displayed in the Park until 31 October. The collection showcases an interesting mix of works from contemporary and mixed-media artists, and a digital animator.

Silver Cascade, by Gary Deirmendjian is a site-specific work affixed above the main pedestrian Entry/Exit of the P1 Car Park. The shimmering silver foil artwork cascades unevenly from the car park's facade and is activated by breeze and light.

Turning Point, by Mandy Schöne-Salter is a large-scale black and white paste-up artwork that greets drivers at the main entrance to the P1 Car Park. It captures the moment NSW Institute of Sport alumnus, Melissa Wu dove into history at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, becoming the youngest Australian to ever win an Olympic diving medal.

James Voller's Pipe Dreams is a large photographic sculpture on display in the Yulang at Sydney Olympic Park. The stunning interactive visual illusion examines and celebrates the Park's industrial heritage.

Digital Dream Quilt is a 3-minute looped animation created by James Price. It will be projected onto the Pullman Hotel each night during Parko Techni 2019 and weaves the history of the Sydney Olympic Park area into a scrolling digital quilt on the bed of colonial settler, D'Arcy Wentworth.

The exhibition compliments the 50 other pieces of public art spread throughout Sydney Olympic Park, which boasts the largest collection of large-scale urban art within a single precinct in Australia.

The Parko Techni artworks will be on display at Sydney Olympic Park until the end of October and are FREE to view.
