Enormous Anglerfish on Wheels Storm Sydney’s VIVID Light Festival in Australia

Three enormous anglerfish on wheels recently stormed the VIVID Light Festival in Sydney. Designed by the emergent multidisciplinary Group D Creative Collective with a lot of support from Sublitech, each glowing fish was carefully made by hand out of printed lycra and chiffon and wrapped around a custom-made bicycle frame.
Follow the Current was easily one of the most exciting installations at this year’s VIVID Sydney festival . Comprised of digitally-printed designs on lycra and chiffon, along with fins, bobble eyes, and giant teeth – all made with about 50 meters of fabric donated by Sublitech  – each anglerfish is wrapped around a bicycle fitted with fish-shaped accessories.
Illuminated from within , the fish then “swam” around the city streets, wowing spectators with their otherworldly presence. This is the first time we have featured work by this Australian collective, but we have a very sneaky suspicion that it won’t be the last!
