    VIVID SYDNEY LIGHT SHOW - SATURDAY 28th MAY

    Well it's that time of the year again folks when we all rug up and venture into the City for the spectacular "Vivid Sydney Light Show".

    I would suggest that we meet at Custom's House at 5pm, maybe grab some dinner, ready for the show to begin at 6pm. Parking will be a challenge!

    Here's a very shortened version of what's on offer this year.

    CUSTOMS HOUSE-
    Nothing is as it seems as one of Sydney’s most stunning colonial buildings, Customs House, turns into glass, mercury, paper, water – and even disappears completely – in a dizzying state of the art projection display.

    Large-scale image projection experts The Electric Canvas transform this iconic sandstone architecture with a series of 3D-mapped animation sequences.

    LIGHT SCULPTURES-
    Vivid Sydney will include over 40 stunning light art installations from local and international artists in a free outdoor exhibition where children are encouraged to climb on interactive sculptures and aspiring photographers can put their night camera settings to the test.

    People of all ages will enjoy this sensory experience, interacting with diverse and colourful sculptures including an enormous sketchpad where you can draw your own light art, a giant crystal spiderweb shimmering in the dark, a social network of friendly fireflies that that react to torch light and a group of rainbow life-size men.

    FIRE DANCE-
    FireDance is an incredible performance of dancing flames choreographed to music, the likes of which has never been seen in Australia before.

    Using 40 jets of flame higher than a three-story house, FireDance will explode 5 times a night every night of Vivid Sydney – making Campbells Cove in the Rocks, the world’s biggest campfire.

    Choreographed to music using the same technology that controls the Harbour Bridge fireworks every New Year’s Eve, FireDance will feature two different shows, alternating between each other on the eighteen incendiary nights of Vivid Sydney.

    LIGHTING THE SAILS-
    The multi-disciplined, multi-talented art & design collective, SUPERBIEN create sumptuous environments of animation, photography, light, space and graphic design. Their incredibly compelling work has been transmitted virally at speeds approaching the light it’s made from. These young, innovative, restless perfectionists are the ideal embodiment of the spirit of Vivid in 2011.

    Unique and gripping, each of their creations is an immersive experience ,seamlessly integrating every possible technique into new forms of multimedia expression. Come down to the harbour and watch this compelling artwork unfold before your eyes. See Sydney Opera House come alive like you’ve never seen before, and never will again.

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Oh no, we will miss this one by 1 day. Saturday is when we fly out from Sydney to Ireland and the UK.
    However, thanks for bringing it up, we have had a look at the website and may be able to make it down there on Friday night for a walk around.

    Hope you enjoy your evening there.

    Not a hard choice in my opinion........mmmmm, Ireland/England or Vivid Sydney. If you don't get to see it on the Friday night you will probably be able to see it next year!

    Thanks for the offer Donnnnnny - I may take you up on that offer yet. I hate driving into the city and I have a lot of trouble with glare at night. I think car pooling is the best way to go.
