Lighting Installations

During Maitland Taste, visitors came to see the City come to life with vibrant, interactive lighting located throughout The Levee, Central Maitland.

LOVE POP

Inspired by Andy Warhol’s Soup Cans,  Love Pop reimagines love and diversity as giant oversized products belonging to an imaginary oversized supermarket.
Created by artist Matthew Aberline and writer Cath Moore with the Beautiful and Useful Studio – Love Pop is an immersive inflatable art landscape. Each product, be it a giant can of True Colours Energy Drink or a Crazy In Love Happy Meal, invites the viewer to participate in a simple game with family and friends. It’s an opportunity to have some some and play together while enjoying the treats at the Taste Festival. The work is also made from 100% recycled PET drinking bottles in studio that uses 100% solar power.
