Vivid Sydney, 18 Days of Lights, Music, and Ideas.

TIMELAPSE – Vivid Sydney 2013 Launch from Vivid Sydney on Vimeo.

The fifth annual Vivid Sydney kicked off 3 days ago for 18 days of light, music, and ideas. The 2 week festival was opened by lighting the sails of the iconic Sydney Opera House with an impressive projection mapping display created by the Spinifex Group. I love this example of projection mapping with it’s stunning visual feast of motion design, color, movement and visual effects lighting artistry.

Vivid Sydney is the biggest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and will take place in Sydney from Friday 24 May to 10 June, from 6pm for Lights On.

For the first time in Vivid Sydney’s five-year history, Vivid Light has extended to Darling Harbour and will transform the popular entertainment area into a spectacle of dancing water fountains, water screen projection performances and dazzling light and water shows, never seen before in Australia, masterminded by France’s legendary Aquatique Show International.
