Vivid Sydney is a festival of light, music and ideas. Vivid Light transforms Sydney into a wonderland of ‘light art’ sculptures, innovative light installations and grand-scale projections for all to enjoy – for free. It is a magical celebration of light-design excellence and the world’s largest outdoor ‘art-gallery’: a unique Vivid Sydney experience. Vivid Light engages lighting artists, designers and manufacturers from around Australia and the world to illuminate, interpret and transform Sydney’s urban spaces through their creative vision.
Shooting at Vivid was an interesting experience, similar to White Night in Melbourne but unlike White Night where everyone is crammed into the city centre for one night, Vivid allows you to relax and take your time over three weeks with installations scattered further apart. One issue we came across was weather, during the week we were there we encountered some devastating wind and rain which caused havoc with traffic and electricity, cutting power to train lines and neighbourhoods.
