2 large colourful light filled parrots at night

Night Parrots, Chalk River Labs

Night Parrots

Night Parrots by Chalk River Labs is an award-winning projection sculpture of a parrot sheltering a fellow parrot with its wing. The two-metre tall, fibreglass sculpture comes to life through a vibrant kaleidoscopic animation of projection mapped, hypnotic colour. Inspired by the ground-dwelling, nocturnal Australian species once believed extinct, Night Parrots celebrates the resilience of nature. 

  • Friday 28 June to Sunday 7 July
  • Projection shows between 5:00 pm and 9:30 pm
  • Knox Ozone, 509 Burwood Highway, Wantirna South
  • Supported by Westfield Knox.

Thoughts on destiny is a trilogy of choreographic duets, designed in response to three significant works in the Knox Public Art Collection. Contemporary dancers, Carmen Yih, Harshil Vora and choreographer Jonathan Homsey invite viewers to gather in the round as they use street, contemporary, and waacking dance styles to create uncanny synchronicities.

Yomeci Fields activation 

Yomeci Fields is a sound-based interactive artwork where colourful chalk drawings reimagine everyday footpaths into playable spaces. A chalk track will be drawn onto a footpath, similar to a hopscotch course, where passersby can interact with the track. As players interact with the drawings, audio compositions and tunes are activated ‘following’ people’s movement.
