Sydney Opera House: Vivid Live

We initiated and executed the realisation of the first double-sided projections on the Sydney Opera House sails, for SmartLight 2009 now known as an annual creative event called Vivid Live.

In collaboration with Brian Eno alongside the technical expertise of Electric Canvas, Sydney Opera House Chief Executive, Richard Evans stated the effect of the project was “…taking the art of the opera house and raising it to a different level”.

We revisited this projection approach in 2010, collaborating with artists Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed to deliver the next iteration. Now Vivid has become a flagship creative event for the City of Sydney and the Opera House, that raises the bar for creative expression through new media experiences year after year.

Creative vision and technical skill resulted in a project that completely shifted the way people perceived what was possible for the iconic sails of the Sydney Opera House, both locally and globally.
