Rising Lotus

Featured at the first ever Coogee Live ‘Rising Lotus’ by Tom Muller is a captivating light and sculptural art installation at Omeo Park, North Coogee. This was a crowd favourite in the inaugural Coogee live so don’t miss your chance to revisit this ephemeral piece again! Tom Muller discusses how Rising Lotus is about the dichotomy of East and West and how we integrate them, “The works are also to do with the polarity of ideas, like travel and escape. All the objects take you to a place, some way or other. We look to the East for internal peace which is contrasted with the West’s ambitiousness.”
