Day of the Dead Festival 2015

Day of the Dead Festival 2015

Melissa's art installation "Tunnel De Luz" (tunnel of love) was featured as a main artwork at the Day of the Dead Festival in November 2015. 

The Artistry, a creative event management and design group, organised this unique festival which was held in a secret location in Sydney. Day Of The Dead Australia (DOTDAU) is the ultimate celebration of life, at the same time we remember and honour the departed. 

The festival referenced the Mexican tradition where festival attendees dressed up in costume and also had the option for artistic face painting and handmade flower crowns on the night. The festival was filled with art installations, a mini art gallery, interactive art, street food, live music and entertainment.

"Through the Tunnel"

Concept: Moments in time is to pass through a web of consciousness, to be present in all senses, to experience the moment,and unleash the curiosity within.'

Description: The art installation is a 9 metre glowing tunnel of woven macrame fabric with projected UV Lights that glows in the night. The tunnel is designed to be sustainable and environmentally friendly through the use of recycled fabric and low powered UV Fluorescent lighting.  

The tunnel is an interactive work, where people can walk through a web ofwoven glowing fabric, creating a unique engaging experience for the viewer, and aims to unleash their playful, cheeky and child-like side as they duck and weave through the tunnel. The tunnel can be touched, and has a breath-like quality, as it slightlymoves, wobbles and bounces while people pass through. 

The tunnel is currently available for hire at events or for purchase - for enquiries please contact Melissa or email art@melissacarey.com.au
