Eleven larger-than-life astronaut sculptures have landed in Barangaroo’s dining precinct as part of the Sydney Festival 2019 city-wide celebration of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the 1969 space flight that first landed people on the moon.
Created by Sydney-based design studio Amigo & Amigo
(known for their Vivid light installations), each sculpture tells a story beyond the two men who walked on the moon – from the first self-funded woman to fly the International Space Station, Anousheh Ansari
, to the Wiradjuri woman sharing Aboriginal knowledge of astronomy, Kirsten Banks
Walk around Barangaroo’s southern dining precinct to find all eleven astronaut sculptures, located in the laneways between buildings and also in some unexpected places! Each sculpture’s story can be discovered by opening your smartphone camera and pointing it at the QR code on the circular floor sticker.
