UNSW Engineering, Built Environment and Art & Design students have cooked up a two-tonne treat for this year’s Vivid Sydney festival – an eight-by-eight meter Celestial Pancake that is suspended from the ceiling of Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal.
The only installation at Vivid Sydney created entirely by university students, the pancake simulates the night sky with 17,500 shimmering LED lights, connected by more than 500km of fibre optic cabling. The pancake uses music to generate patterns with the lights to envelop visitors in an immersive audio-visual experience.
Dylan Goh, Dylan Sunusi-Goh, Josh Sun & Mel Wimborne reflect on their experience of bringing the Celestial Pancake to life!
