Real Festival’s outdoor art gallery is like no other. In this unique creative space there are no walls or floors and some artworks stand towering amongst the trees, while others are so intertwined with the space it’s hard to tell where the art stops and nature begins.

The collection of interactive and illuminated art installations shine, move, twinkle, twist, glow and even make noise. Their intricacies will mesmerise you; their beauty will astound you but it’s the meaning behind the artworks and the motivations of the artists that will have a lasting impact.

Highlights of the outdoor art gallery include Nebulous, a towing kinetic structure that stands as tall as the tree canopy and commands attention. The Sonic Light Bubble which is a warm and friendly piece that you’ll find hard to resist and Unity which you can help create by sharing your story.
