Brisbane’s Art Boat will be moored near Eat Street, showcasing The Spheres by internationally renowned visual artist, Lindy Lee.

Ms Lee is an Australian artist, whose practice explores her Chinese ancestry and Taoist philosophy.

Ms Lee’s work, The Spheres, drew inspiration from Ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras, who speculated that celestial bodies caused vibrations as they coursed majestically through the heavens.

Pythagoras termed it ‘Music of the Spheres,’ a philosophical concept that regards proportions in the movements of the moons, stars, and planets, as a form of music. Ms Lee’s work is inspired by symbolic gestures and processes that call on the element of chance to produce a galaxy of images that embody the intimate connections between human existence and the cosmos.

As it returns this year, Brisbane’s Art Boat will embark on special midnight and dawn cruises as well as a mindfulness program.

The Art Boat experience is part of the 2022 Brisbane Festival, which begins on 2 September and ends on 24 Sept.
