Bring a picnic and a torch and explore Meagan Streader’s expansive ephemeral installation, Silver Sunset. Sprawling out across the Barrier Ranges and the Mundi Mundi Plains, Silver Sunset articulates the bursts of light seen as the sun sinks below the horizon. Both natural and artificial light interact with highly reflective fabric to reference the towns moniker ‘The Silver City’ and the discovery of silver ore, once establishing Broken Hill as a prosperous mining town.
A guide on interacting with Silver Sunset:
Take a walk into the ranges and through the artwork.
At sunset, experiment with your position in relation to the work. Stand back and then closer, to one side and then the other, and observe the shifting hues of dusk.
Once the sun has set, use your torch or smart phone light to illuminate the work. Make sure you look at the work directly behind your torch to catch the angle of the light.
