White Beam

Art, Installation
White Beam at Melbourne Fringe

Farewell this year's Melbourne Fringe Festival with another spectacular light piece by Robin Fox

Think about the way you walk through public spaces. Do you look up and around, taking in your surroundings? Or do you gaze downward, perhaps at your phone?

In his second major installation at this year's Melbourne Fringe (the first being the epic Sky Light), Robin Fox will illuminate a static horizontal beam of shimmering white light just above head-height at Grattan Gardens in Prahran. White Beam will encourage visitors to look up, to connect with other people and to marvel at this living, glowing artwork. 

In addition to being one of Australia's pre-eminent laser artists, Robin Fox is also a composer. While you watch the white beam, an electronic soundtrack will swirl through the gardens, building to a crescendo every 15 minutes. 

This major light work will be the grand finale of Melbourne Fringe, which this year has seen more than 460 shows take over the city. If you're yet to see a show, there's still time: check out Time Out's top 10 picks and find out what's on at the Festival Club.
