VIVID Sydney 2012 Opening Night Party MCA photos and story; MiSociety 25 May 2012
Sydney VIVID light show 2012 - another illuminating Sydney success story
VIVID Sydney 2012 exploded into life with a dazzling light show that had guests at the ‘turning on of the lights’ VIP party gasping with delight. As a chill wind whistled around the balcony of the 6th floor of Sydney’s MCA we huddled together not wanting to miss a second of the first sequence of the luminous wizardry dancing across the sails of Sydney’s Opera House.
Urban Screen, a German design collective, won the commission to transform the sails of Sydney’s Opera House in 2012 to again project the iconic sailed structure onto the world wide stage.
Circular Quay, alive with light below us, was jam packed with many thousands of excited onlookers assembled for what has now become another of Sydney’s signature events.
The Hon. Andrew Stoner, Deputy Premier of NSW, officially opened the fourth ‘VIVID Sydney’ declaring “VIVID Sydney reinforced the harbour city as Australia’s global city and a creative hub of the Asia-Pacific region”.
Igantius Jones, Executive Director of VIVID Sydney, joined in the celebrations along with many dignitaries including the CEO of Destination NSW, Sandra Chipchase and Major Sponsor Intel Australia New Zealand General Manager, Kate Burleigh.
VIVID Sydney Opening Party consumed the entire sixth floor of the Museum of Contemporary Art and continued to sparkle well into the night – then becoming the official epicentre for the 2012 Sydney light show as ‘The Art Bar’.
VIVID Sydney 2012 is happening all around Sydney’s environs and definitely something not to be missed with large crowds gathering nightly. VIVID Sydney 2012 includes VIVID Light, VIVID Live, VIVID Ideas
