Vivid Sydney

Since 4 years there is the festival of lights Vivid Sydney at the end of May. During 18 days there are many light installations in the center around Circular Quay. Starting 6pm there are projections to the Opera House, the Custom House and the Museum of Modern Art. That year they projected humans onto the Opera House. The idea is from a German artist. On the museum there are different colourful pictures and on the Custom House there was an animation movie about a day in a town. Additionally the skyscrapers are lit up with coloured lights. Around all the area there are many art installations playing with light. It was very fascinating to see how this changes the area around the Opera House.
