A fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi

At first I was all...

And then I was like -

And now I'm all 

"There is not enough darkness in all the world to put out the light of even one small candle"
- Robert Alden

 "When you possess light within, you see it externally."
- Anais Nin

"It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light."

- Aristotle Onasis

The Light in Winter

This Melbourne festival brings together artists, designers, architects, filmmakers and multicultural groups in a free, month-long program of light sculptures, talks, events, workshops, performances and the Solstice Celebration.  This year’s program, directed by Robyn Archer, is inspired by the National Year of the Reading and will celebrate the enlightenment that reading sheds on our lives. Literary texts, oral traditions, calligraphy, music, body art and braille are all viewed in a new light, along with imaginative light sculptures, and surprising collaborations from top international and local artists, designers and architects.  This morning on the river terrace I enjoyed cBraillie by Rob Caslick.  Located in a shipping container, cBraille focuses on emotions as the direct link between visitors and a visually impaired person.
