Illumination of both the real and ever imaginative. Contemplation of the colorful realities of the modern city. Over 100 world-renowned, thought-provoking creative industry events. All these and more are staples of Vivid Sydney Festival 2012, now back for a fourth consecutive year of dynamic displays and groundbreaking art.
The Vivid festival is a celebration of lights, music, and ideas that you will never forget. Whether its the “Lighting of the Sails” you come for, or whether youʼve heard about the artistic power of German designers URBANSCREEN, now is your chance to experience this unique global phenomena. Come join artists from France, Poland, Scotland, Hong Kong, USA, Brazil, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia and bask in the dynamism of their low-energy light art.
Views span both the Sydney Harbour-side and the vibrant city skyline, as, this year, a 3D digital mapping display is one of the festivalʼs highlights. A celebration of the original inhabitants of the Sydney basin, the display projects across iconic buildings to express visual impressions of the six seasons of the Indigenous calendar.
The festival is from 25 May to 11 June. Be among the 500,000 Sydneysiders and visitors to witness the spectacle.
