Sydney May – June 2017 (12 photos)
This is part 4 of my Vivid Sydney 2017 series of posts.
After 23 nights, Vivid Sydney 2017 ended on the weekend. I don’t know what to expect next year but given the increasing popularity of Vivid and next year being the 10th anniversary, it may be something you want to visit, if you’ve ever given that idea some consideration.
As in previous years, there was a light display on the harbourside façade of the Museum of Contemporary Art, opposite the Sydney Opera House. This year’s display was entitled, “Organic Vibrations”.
Organic Vibrations was a collaboration between Julia Gorman, an Australian artist whose work is currently on display in the collection galleries of the Museum of Contemporary Art, and Paris-based creative and artistic collective, Danny Rose. Together, they created an artwork from the constant morphing and mutation of a series of images, which flowed across over the façade of the MCA.
The abstract images were drawn from the shapes and colours of the natural world, and were depicted as sinuous lines that appeared to grow organically until they covered the geometric art deco façade of the Museum. The installation used projection-mapping techniques to transform the façade with images originally made by the artist in watercolour, oils, marker pen, and painting applications.
The result was a 10 minute sequence of handmade images flowing and morphing across the Museum, synthesised with music.
Transient vividness: Fleeting images and crowd.
As at any event, please exercise caution and beware of what or who may be hiding in the shadows.
