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.
The light projection on Sydney’s iconic Opera House turned it into a huge live theatre. A beautiful rendezvous of art and technology.
The patterns repeat after an interval, but I kept watching it. It looked so captivating and impressive.
One of my favorite installations this year is the Cathedral of Light – a beautiful tunnel of light at the Royal Botanic Garden.
