‘angler fish’ bicycles as part of the VIVID sydney light festivalimage © keith mcinnes photography


during the annual VIVID sydney light event, group d collective, an australian multidisciplinary studio, built multiple illuminated
‘angler fish’ to take part in the festival. the glowing structures are in fact bicycles that were able to be ridden around the city,
creating a colorful aquatic spectacle to adorn the grey urban landscape. the three deep-sea creatures were fabricated with custom
frames that then had digitally-printed lycra and chiffon skins pulled tightly over. the radiant purple, blue and green tones coordinated
well with the theme of the vibrant carnival, bringing a marine glow to its audience.
