It’s that time of the year when Sydney is illuminated in brilliant colors of VIVID. Vivid Sydney is an annual festival of light when for 3 weeks lights, music and ideas intersect. Various world class sculptures are placed around the CBD area, that light up exactly at 6:00 pm and goes on till 11:00 pm. I got a chance to see the ones at Martin Place and Circular Quay before rains and thunderstorms lashed the city. Since the festival will go on till 18th June, I still have two weekends to check out the rest. For now, here’s a glimpse of how Circular Quay looks at night.
Opera House drenched in stunning hues!!
Sydney Harbour Bridge
Custom House became a canvas for displaying ‘Sydney’s Hidden Stories’, a beautiful animated story that runs in loop till 11:00 pm, with just 30 second break in between.
Electric colors splashed on MCA building.
Other installations which enables the visitor to interact and play with the lights.
Extrude – as you jump on the platform, you can see various colors rising and falling
I love you – The louder you scream ‘I love you’, the prettier the colors turn at the background
