Vivid Sydney. From May 24 to June 10, the city of Sydney lights up in a festival dedicated to light, music and ideas. Easily one of the highlights of this year’s Vivid, which is still going on, was seeing the sails of the iconic Sydney Opera House light up. Sydney-based creative agency Spinifex Group used a combination of light projection, video mapping, and motion graphics to create Play, the hallmark event of Vivid.
Spinifex Group is behind some of the largest projection mapped projects to date including ones at the Beijing Olympic Games 2012 and Russia’s 20th Anniversary of Moscow Day. Play is a newly commissioned work that transport audiences through a playful projected journey they won’t ever forget.
The Weekend Australian described the lighting of the sails this way, “The inevitable centerpiece of Vivid Sydney, most anticipated, most noticed, most remembered and most photographed.”
