The inaugural [ART IN THE DARK] took place on the 15th and 16th of October 2010 in Western Park, Ponsonby. Artists explored the ideas of community, environment and Utopia which transformed the park into a festival of light, art installations and projected short films. The entire event is eco-friendly and powered by clean energy. We especially loved the "Moo Chandelier" which was the creation of Hamish Stirrat, Callum Dowie and Jun Tsujimoto - empty and discarded milk bottles were given a second life with amazing displays of light and colour.
The aim of the project is to make it an annual event and judging by what we saw, we think that that the event will get bigger and bigger each year. A job well done and we hope to return in 2011.
