Vivid lights up iconic Sydney Opera House
THE Sydney Opera House is one of our country's most iconic landmarks and great pieces of architecture.
But for a couple of weeks in May and June, the Jorn Utzon-designed building becomes one of Australia's greatest, monumental and visually-stunning works of art.
Vivid Sydney has again lit up the Opera House in a technicolour display that has already captured the imagination of thousands of locals, tourists and art-lovers.
In a video filmed by Storyful, the Opera House's famous sails glow with a reddish hue that eventual, thanks to whip-like tendrils, take over the entire structure like an unstoppable tide.
The entire attack of light is accompanied to the eerie soundtrack of pulsating bursts and a soft but noticeable crackle.
The show, aptly named 'Lighting of the Sails: Audio Creatures', is the joint brainchild of art director Ash Bolland, sound-wizard Amon Tobin and Olympic veterans Spinifex.
Vivid Sydney hosts 'Lighting of the Sails: Audio Creatures', along with an extensive array of other exhibitions of light and sound, until June 17.
