Architects, artists and designers will have the chance to turn on and turn up Sydney as part of the annual Vivid Festival.
February 8th, 2011
Vivid organisers are inviting light artists, designers and architects from around Australia to create light and sound installations for the festival, which will run from 27 May until 13 June and create an immersive, engaging experience for the senses.
“We are looking for artists who can bring dynamic and engaging lighting concepts to Sydney’s well known public spaces in a way that uses minimal energy and encourages people to think more creatively about urban design and light,” said Mary-Anne Kyriakou-Bracke, co-curator of Vivid’s light sculpture installations.

“With Vivid Light set to attract creative industry members from all around the world, this is an excellent chance for Australian lighting artists to showcase their innovative aesthetics and latest technologies to the international design community.”
The theme this year is Fiat Lux – Let There Be Light, and artists are encouraged to incorporate low-energy lighting techniques and encourage public interaction with their designs.
Vivid Light will appear every night during the Vivid Festival, creating a sensory sculptural walk around the Sydney harbour-front precinct.
