Just having a bit of fun…

“Colours speak all languages.” – Joseph Addison

During the day, these installations at the Northcote Town Hall is cute, colourful and playful for kids and kids at heart (as you can see here). But I heard that it really is something else when the neon lights at night.

This large scale interactive neon installations is by renowned Australian visual artist Carla O’Brien.
