Glowing red cube on concrete floorArtists: Michael O'Dwyer, Emah Fox, Nilgun Guven with children at ArtPlay

Over 50 hand-crafted boxes have been made by children using native Australian timbers. Each child has explored their connection to place by creating their own soundscape which has been housed in his or her box.

This installation will see the boxes lit from within and scattered across the green hill outside ArtPlay, creating an enticing scene which glows in the dark. You are invited to wander through the installation, drawing near and picking up individual boxes as they reveal to you their own intimate soundscape.

Drinks and nibbles provided.
