Calling all lava lamps and glomesh bags

lava lamps




Willoughby City Council is giving people the opportunity to breathe new life into their lava lamps and glomesh bags. Instead of just hanging around the house and gathering dust, these items can be part of Vivid Sydney at Chatswood’s ‘Lightscape’ exhibition, an eclectic celebration of food, fashion, light, the planet and the cosmos.


One of the main attractions will be the Light Market, a pop-up international food market created from recycled materials and lit by lasers, inspired by the favelas of Brazil and Star Wars. The market’s vibrant lighting design will include lava lamps and glomesh bags, partly donated by the public, to create dazzling illuminations.


Members of the public wanting to donate a lava lamp or glomesh bag of any form and size are encouraged to send the items to Willoughby City Council at level 4, 31 Victor Street, Chatswood, NSW 2067, up until Friday 4th May.


Donators will be able to see their contribution at Lightscape, which launches on the 25th of May and will run until the 16th of June 2018. Vivid Sydney at Chatswood is a free event to the public.
