TRACY SARROFF's latest public commission was officially opened by Martin Foley, MP, Victorian Minister for the Creative Industries on 1st August 2017.

Located in Melbourne's Docklands, Light Buoys is an ambitious site specific and interactive light-based sculptural artwork.

The work, commissioned by Mirvac for Development Victoria and the City of Melbourne rises six metres at its highest point and approximately 50 metres along the length of the moat. Consisting of 16 buoyant crystalline shards made from cloudy acrylic of varying heights, each shard incorporates LEDs housed within the stainless-steel buoys to illuminate the acrylic with colourful glows activated by passing pedestrians on the lower promenade via ultrasonic sensors; resembling a life form recognising or responding to another life form.
