Vivid Sydney III

Vivid Sydney III

Every year the city of Sydney lights up for Vivid Sydney, a showcase of visual arts. The entire event takes place at night, so the art installations are all dealing with light: static light sculptures, light in motion, and vivid displays of color.

Perhaps the most incredible sight is to see the iconic Sydney Opera House lit up in a repeating loop of colorful images and graphics, set to accompanying music, and projected on the Opera House from across Circular Quay. If the Opera House looks good during the day in and white, it looks incredible at night in color.

I had the chance to visit and photograph Vivid Sydney twice the year I captured this image. The first night was rainy, but still yielded good results. The second night was clear and spectacular. The projected show on the Opera House lasted about six or seven minutes, so I got to watch it over and over again. My favorite part of the show was the colorful geometric patters of this image. They colors transitioned smoothly over a short time, but the vibrant blues, purples, reds and oranges were my favorite.
