NOX 2017 - Night Sculpture Walk
6-8pm, Friday 15 September
- When 15 Sep - 17 Sep 2017
NOX is best accessed via Munda Street, Randwick
Latin for night, NOX, is also an evening sculpture walk presented in Randwick’s beautiful Environment Park.
Members of the public will experience the natural environment like never before, as creative practitioners from across UNSW Art & Design transform the park and wetland into an illuminated outdoor environmental artwork.
For three nights only, artworks will be installed around the park to form a leisurely 1.5km loop walk, starting and ending at the Randwick Community Centre. Lead by Allan Giddy, the Director of the Environmental Research Initiative for Art at UNSW Art & Design, and opened by the Dean of UNSW Art & Design, Professor Ross Harley, participating artists will be on site every night to discuss the inspiration behind their artworks.
Randwick Environment Park comprises 13 hectares of parkland, bushland and wetland. The bushland and wetland provides valuable habitat for native birds, lizards, frogs and mammals. More than 90 species of indigenous plants have been identified to date. The Park contains 3.6 hectares of Eastern Suburbs Banksia Scrub, an endangered ecological community, and is also home to the endangered Sunshine Wattle.
After the walk, grab a bean bag and chill out under the starry skies whilst being entertained with live music, roving fire twirlers, and LED hula hoopers. A range of popular Sydney Food Trucks and a licensed bar will also be open.
