Mirazozo by Architects of Air - part 3

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 19 January 2011 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

To transmit so much light, this plastic is ultra thin. Only 0.5 mm thick!

While in Sydney recently, I was amazed to see that what at first looked like a giant version of one of those inflatable jumping castles had sprung up next to the Sydney Opera House. Except you don’t jump on it - but rather go inside! This is Mirazozo. It is a luminous maze of tunnels and domes designed by Architects of Air. They have built 15 such bubble domes which have toured the world.

And so in we go! The experience is like walking through a sculpture of colour and light. The sequence of shots you will see in the series follows my progress through each of the coloured domes.

No processing of these shots - apart from a slight tweaking of contrast.

This will be a six part series. I hope you enjoy it!

Now this capture is truly psychedelic with so many different colors and circular forms. I'm wondering why you're the only one with a camera. Unless the others are using their iphones. :-)
