Looking back at Sydney’s incredible Rainbow Laneway

Sydney vs Melbourne. There are many arguments about which is the superior Australian city. As a Sydney local, the harbour city will always be home. However, I often find Melbourne an enticing and edgy mistress. Apart from the world-class coffee and abundance of galleries and record stores, Melbourne’s laneways are high up on the list of why I’m in love with the city. Thankfully, cool people like Nike Savvas are working hard at making Sydney’s laneways a little prettier.

While it no longer exists, Savvas’s installation in Bridge Lane, Sydney, was quite the spectacle: thousands of multi-coloured strands, swaying back and forth in the breeze. It was all done for Sydney’s annual Art and About Festival, which sees artists transform the city into one big artwork. If only the installation could come back.
