Darling Square will light up taste buds during Vivid Sydney with an installation By Motti & Smith and Belle Laide Events that will blur the lines between food, art and architecture. For three weeks – from Friday 24 May to Saturday 15 June – Darling Square will be home to Blacklight, an illuminated and multisensory dessert bar led by Gelato Messina.

The ultraviolet dessert bar, located in a black cube, features collaborations with some of Sydney’s food and beverage heavyweights opening soon at Darling Square. Messina, DOPA by Devon, Edition Coffee Roasters and Bubble Nini will create a rotating menu of glow-in-the-dark desserts – with four available each night during Vivid Sydney.

Lighting up Darling Square, the cube features colour changing panels, creating the kind of attraction synonymous with Vivid Sydney. Inside the cube, 23-year-old Brisbane-based artist Leans adds colour with a multi-dimensional artwork displayed throughout the three-week pop-up.
