Cupid's Koi Garden
Enter a wonderland of sound and splash at Tumbalong Park this Sydney Festival.
If you're looking for things to do in Sydney this summer, a magical marine world awaits in Cupid’s Koi Garden, a six-metre-tall immersive water-play installation splashing summer fun on all within reach.
Within the world’s first inflatable fountain, passersby are serenaded by submerged sounds and spritzed by the cheeky cherub Cupid and his ten friendly koi fish squirting choreographed water jets.
Wander and play amid brightly coloured fish and terrazzo ponds under the watchful gaze of Cupid’s motion-tracking LED eyes. At night, a wonderland of light and colour bathes viewers in a kaleidoscopic glow. It’s a free, family-friendly and multi-sensory playground of gushing bubblers and trickling soundtracks, inviting joy, a bit of silliness, and a lot of splash. Public art at its playful best.
From Melbourne-based art and technology studio ENESS, creators of the popular Airship Orchestra (Sydney Festival 2022) comes yet another magical world plucked straight from our collective imaginations.
