I’ve been seeing a lot of strange constructions around Sydney over the past few weeks. They seemed to consist of fibre-optic cabling, plastic cups, and the odd fake animal. It was only when walking home last night that I realised that all that work had culminated in a spectacular light show put on by The City of Sydney.
Welcome to Smart Light Sydney, a festival of installation-art around Sydney’s city centre. Legendary British artist Brian Emo’s spectacular lighting of the Sydney Opera House is the main event, but I quite like the Argyle Cut scene by German artist Ingo Bracke, shown above, as well as the oh-so-sydney Weather Projection by Alex Haw. Check out the excellent gallery at news.com.au for more.
