PLANET: UNDER CONSTRUCTION


As architects, Woods Bagot were involved in the creation of landscapes, buildings and cities. Using orange construction cones to symbolise their architectural work, they created Planet: Under Construction, a spherical lighting sculpture that mimics a planet. This celestial body featured orange peaks as ‘volcanoes’ that suggested energy and renewal. Lights at its core escaped through cracks and holes in the structure. Lighting levels were triggered by motion sensors hidden in orange cones set up around its base creating an interactive element. Some of these cones also include devices that record and playback a distort- ed version of visitors’ voices, along with other sound components.

MCA


In addition to the Sydney Opera House pro- jections, the Spinifex team were involved in a range of projection work across VIVID, including the iconic Sugar Stores façade (in collaboration with Audi), a one-night-only projection on Customs House on June 1, to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the BBC’s Dr Who, and this crowd-stopping work on the old Art Deco façade of the Museum of Contemporary Art (in collaboration with Australian artist Gemma Smith).

THE ENLIGHTENING PIANO


When the keys of Steensen Varming’s En- lightening Piano are struck, lights embed- ded within the piano are activated, so every piece of music played produces a different light pattern. Inbuilt sound sensors convert- ed music into DMX signals that control var- ious lighting effects, both in intensity and colour variation. Lights were also embedded within the stage and connected to the piano keys. Again different pieces of music pro- duce different stage light patterns. Like several installations across VIVID, The Enlightening Piano featured LED lighting from Philips.

EVERY ONE EVERY DAY Pics: Destination NSW / Ethan Rohloff


Every One Every Day by Kuuki (Gavin Sade and Priscilla Bracks) used waste material provoke a debate about domestic patterns of consumption. Polyethylene material destined for recycling was used to form a cube with a volume equal to the Australian average per capita output of greenhouse gas. Internal LEDs it translated data on average household energy into a glowing pattern of light. CREDITS: Kuuki, Visy, Acron, Rotadyne, QUT, Carbon Arts, Xenian, BE Collective
