COLOUR THE BRIDGE


Joining the headline acts at this year’s festival, Colour The Bridge took another of Sydney’s iconic landmarks and handed it over to the public to play with. From 6pm each night, an interactive light- ing system took over the illumination of the west side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. From a large touch screen console located over the harbour at Luna Park, the public were able to select a palette and pattern of lighting before hitting ‘Go’ and watching their design leap onto the bridge. The project was another major collabo- ration designed for VIVID by 32 Hundred Lighting with partner, Intel.


The lighting installation was designed by Iain Reed with software design and produc- tion by Martin Bevz.


The installation uses 2,000 LED linear tubes each displaying 16 pixels of a fibre-optic fed video stream. In all, 100,800 LEDs combine to bring this huge interactive light sculpture to life.

NOCTURNAL PIANOLA


A mini MIDI keyboard was connected to a large-scale counterpart in this piece by Simon Brockwell of SBLD. As members of the public played out a tune, the keys lit up with Robe lighting. CREDITS: Robe


RICOCHET


Created by Arup and multi-disciplinary design studio Frost, Ricochet was a complex web of laser-beams, using the long narrow form of Suez Canal alley in The Rocks to create an interactive maze that reacted to users breaking the beams with sound and colour change.


The beam patterning is set-up in a series of three modes, which change colour and configuration throughout the night, chang- ing the experience as participants climb, flex and contort their bodies through the laneway. CREDITS: Arup, Frost, Kerfoot, LTP, Jands
