VIVID LIGHT WALK
« on: May 18, 2015, 01:34:18 PM »
This year’s magical journey starts at the forecourt of the Sydney Opera House with huge Siamese fighting fish in Splendens, a big, joyful and spectacular welcome to the Vivid Light Walk 2015. Head along East Circular Quay and you’ll be drawn to a bright red, pulsating heart, The Heart of the City. Walk into a new-look world of Light Origami at the AMP Forecourt, while the Lucky Country bounces to life in the Museum of Sydney’s floating glass cube.

Head towards The Rocks and First Fleet Park for BeatDice, where you can be the DJ using a series of cubes that lights up and grooves when re-arranged. Affinity uses Intel Galileo boards to reproduce the neurons and synapses that make our brains work. Further along, a giant Rococo pig called Entitle is yet another one of Vivid 2015’s ‘big things’ to make a statement.

Cadmans Cottage is the centre of attention for INTER/Play, the Light Walk’s biggest multi-player experience. In Kendall Lane, a tiny cobblestone laneway in The Rocks, The Dresses appear as a ghostly apparition created by fibre-optics while the Argyle Cut is the dramatic setting for Life Story created by BBC Earth. The epic story of life unfolds in front of your eyes through amazing images of the natural world.

Heading back towards the harbour foreshore, a large ornate ‘eye’ watches the city from on high; change the mood of Geometric Eye from happy to alert, sparkling to excited. Towering nearby is a lovable crochet doll with extra-long arms and a body made from both cotton rope and metres of LED light-rope. Hug Dolly for the perfect selfie. Then head to Dawes Point for another photo opportunity at You Are Here, brought to Vivid by Indeed.com. The Philips Tree of Light beckons with more than 5,000 twinkling LED lights.

Artists: Studio Workshop (Chris Knapp (Australia) / Jonathan Nelson (Australia)) + Matsys (Andrew Kudless (USA))

Collaborators: Bond University (Nathan Freeman (Australia) + Bollinger-Grohmann (Sascha Bohnenberger (Germany)) + Media Architecture Institute / UNSW (Matthias Hausler (Germany) / Eliot Rosenburg (Australia) / Rebekah Araullo (Australia) / Marius Hoggenmuller (Germany))

Country: Australia

Arclight is an architecturally designed, environmentally inspired structure that echoes the native mangroves of Australia’s waterways. Through its complex geometry and architectural form, Arclight creates a dense thicket of clustered synthetic branch structures which incorporate interactive lighting technology programmed to interpret environmental conditions.

The project exploits experimental and cutting-edge architectural approaches: computer-aided manufacturing created by advanced fabrication methods, and computational software which provides designers with the digital tools to make buildings both complex and sustainable.

Arclight creates an immersive atmosphere of sculptural, bio-inspired forms that is intensified with LED lights programmed to interpret ambient and environmental phenomena (such as temperature, wind speed, and humidity), which are sensed and expressed via patterns and colours emitted by LED cells.
