Positioned on The Promenade at Robina Town Centre and erected by Surf City Cranes, Aurora comes to life at night in a spectrum of colours.
Created by San Francisco-based industrial artist Charles Gadeken for the 2014 Burning Man Festival in Nevada, Aurora is a one-of-a-kind, towering 9 metre willow tree, with hand beaten copper leaves that chime in the wind. This magnificent piece of art allows you to control the lighting of its branches from your phone, or from the iPad located near the tree.
“With this piece, I am creating an environment of mythical beauty that instils a sense of awe, wonder and joy to those who experience it. It acts as a unique and unexpected element placed in the world that empowers and transforms the viewer at the moment of participation.” – Charles Gadeken, Artist
