Adventuring Sydneyside: In Between Two Worlds

One of my favorite things about Sydney is that there is art just about everywhere. Chinatown has one of the best examples of this with the In Between Two Worlds installation on Kimber Lane.

It’s fairly unassuming by day, with just a few of the spirit figures peeking out onto busy Hay Street. If you turn down Kimber Lane, however, you’ll find many more of the figures suspended above the blue clouds that cover the buildings and street.

By night the scene changes again as the spirit figures glow blue, giving the whole street a ethereal feel. The figures are meant to represent our past, present, and future ancestors.

In Between Two Worlds was created by Asian-Aboriginal artist Jason Wing as part of the upgrade to Kimber Lane. For more information about the artist, click here.
