More than just a Light Installation
Oasis pays homage to the memory of the ‘forgotten’ Australian children who grew up in care; in orphanages, children’s homes, foster care and institutions.
This beautiful and poignant installation creates a sea of lights that dance on and around water. It is positioned in a corner of the Royal Botanic Garden, Sydney dedicated to the memory of “lonely, frightened, lost and abused children who never knew the joy of a loving family”.
The floating lights bob and sway with the elements but always return to their upright position, a paradox of fragility and resilience. From afar, the lights beckon to all who pass by – up close the lights lead the viewer to a place of deep reflection.
