Have a look at the Sea Mirror by Yann Kersale in the Central Park. Further info below:

Located on One Central Park’s dramatic cantilevered heliostat at the $2 billion Central Park development in Chippendale, Sea Mirror is Kersale’s first artwork in Australia as well as his first cantilevered lighting installation and his first using a heliostat.

Kersale’s inspiration for the artwork is Sydney Harbour. This permanent artwork features a rotating sequence of short ‘performances’ reflecting the seasons – Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. Each sequence is designed to capture the changing colours of Sydney Harbour in the 320 individual mirror plates of the heliostat. These mirrored panels each contain nine LED coloured lights, which collectively are programmed to create a dazzling artwork

It will be his sixth project working in collaboration with Pritzker Architecture Prize-winning, French architect, Jean Nouvel, who has designed the iconic One Central Park development with local partner, PTW.
