Curated by Joel Cockrill and Craig Morrison

A free public event of unprecedented scale and significance, Blinc transforms Elder Park and surrounds into a giant spectacular outdoor digital art gallery, every night of the festival.

Download the map

Stroll from one light and sound installation to the next and immerse yourself in this exclusive survey of the very best international digital art. From large-scale projections to extraordinary laser works, building-mapping projects, and more intimate, interactive experiences, this cutting-edge selection displays astonishing feats of technical brilliance from some of the world's best artists. As much a family experience as a contemporary art exhibition, Blinc is an event to return to again and again during the festival, as everything from a series of faces projected in trees to a larger-than-life three dimensional elephant light up this iconic precinct in the most unforgettable way.

Blinc Bar

Located at the heart of our open-air gallery in Elder Park, Blinc Bar is open every night during the festival serving quick eats and refreshments from pre-show until late into the night. Get exhibition maps and the lowdown on all things Blinc at our information booth before walking the digital art installations, and swing back afterwards to bask in what you just experienced over a drink with friends and family. A picturesque pitstop to refresh, recharge and revel on the riverbank.
