Christmas celebrations in Melbourne

Melbourne-based design outfit, SIBLING transformed Fed Square with Whiteout for Spirit of the Square 2014.

 

Filling The Square with large, snow-white spheres, Whiteout created an immersive and interactive landscape for people of all ages. 

 

The installation was a playful take on the snowy imagery often seen in cinema and TV during the festive season and provided the backdrop to a daily program of free events.

 

The program included festive films, Big Screen Gaming, live music and a resident illustrator who captured the merriment in sketches for visitors to take home! 

 

There was also an Orphans’ Christmas on 25 December for fellow Christmas exiles or families looking for a fun place to spend the day. Christmas Day featured the Breakfast Hop, games by Pop Up Playground and a movie marathon on the Big Screen.
