Halfway through Vivid, the greatest has yet to be shown. But if you have a free moment, or coming from afar, be sure to check out these installations before they go.

The show continues to go on with Vivid, and Sydney continues to shine for the coming weeks until the 17th of June. And what better way to mark halfway than diving into what’s happening at one of the city’s central hubs.
From Central Station to Darling Harbour, the urban walkway, The Goods Line, is alight with gorgeous marvels, technological breakthroughs, and even traditional architectural icons for the design curious. Here are just four out of 11 installations new to this year’s Vivid we cannot recommend enough.
1. A Mirrored City
See another city within Sydney with this immersive installation. A series of building-like forms shines through the dichroic firm as you are invited to walk between them. This playful experience guides you through vignettes of Sydney life, with familiar locations or reminiscent memories.
A celebration of First Nations people travels through The Goods Line to this trio of light sculptures. LED screen technology brings a new way of expression as the yidaki (traditional didgeridoo) sings and poetry is spoken by Yolngu dancers Baykali Ganambarr, Wakara Gondarra and Watjarr (Marko) Garmu.
In this unused Goods Line tunnel, the largest laser installation in Vivid history is taking place. Over 100 custom lasers transform this tunnel into a portal of visual and sensual mystery. Lights, lasers, and smoke effects dance with the art of the seemingly abandoned, with an ending that shouldn’t be spoiled.
4. Frankly, My dear
Windows illuminated by colour-changing cove lights and wall grazers, the Frank Gehry-designed UTS Business School plays with the crumbled-looking brick design with gorgeous vistas of bejewelled hues.
