Opera of lights

The Sydney Opera House is probably one of the most recognizable buildings in the world, a landmark of Sydney, attracting thousands of tourists every year – rather on the outside, than the inside. This iconic building, along with some others sites in the city and Sydeny Harbour, is transformed every year into a breathtaking, living canvass during the Festival Vivid Sydney, turning them into something even more magical. For instance, in 2011 a French projection artists Superbien accepted a commission from the Vivid curator,  to light the facade of the Opera House for that edition of the festival.

I’ve chosen just some photos of the Sydney Opera House, but I’m of opinion that the range of images that appear on the famous swan wings of the Opera roof with the light show prepared for the Festival demonstrates how one building can can morph magnificently creating all different worlds.
