Vivid Sydney Circular Quay 2016 | Australia

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.

Sydney Harbour Bridge
Custom House became a canvas for displaying ‘Sydney’s Hidden Stories’, a beautifully animated story that runs in a loop till 11:00 pm, with just 30-second break in between.

Electric colors splashed on MCA building.

Other installations which enables  the visitor to interact and play with the lights.
Extrude – as you jump on the platform, you can see various colors rising and falling
I love you – The louder you scream ‘I love you’, the prettier the colors turn at the background

One of my favorite installations this year is the Cathedral of Light – a beautiful tunnel of light at the Royal Botanic Garden.
