Sydney Harbour Bridge will be the centrepiece of a new interactive light installation for Vivid Sydney, extending the Vivid Light Walk across the harbour into the North Sydney precinct for the first time.
Vivid partner, Intel Australia, has teamed up with Sydney-based lightwork innovators 32 Hundred Lighting to create a world-first immersive projection onto the bridge’s western face which will be controlled by the public from an interactive touch screen located on the Luna Park boardwalk.
From 6.00pm to midnight every night, between 24 May and 10 June, spectators will be able to choose the scene and colour of the projection beamed along the upper and lower arches and the road deck of the western face of Sydney Harbour Bridge.
32 Hundred Lighting will design the installation including 100,800 individual programmable LEDs and a state-of-the-art custom-designed software program with an interactive touch screen interface."
Vivid Sydney, the world famous light festival in Sydney, Australia that draws in crowds of more than half a million.
Head to North Sydney to See the City Light up
2013 is the year you can finally give the Sydney Harbour Bridge the paint job it’s always needed without the usual 272,000 litres of paint.
Using the latest interactive lighting technology, you’ll be able to select a section of the bridge to light up, choose your own colour and watch in awe as your illuminated creation brings to life the beautiful grey arch and spans of this iconic piece of Australian architecture. It’s a rare treat to play with something you drive, walk or cycle over on a regular basis!
The result is not just a beautifully lit bridge, stacked with an amazing over 100,800 energy-efficient LED lights. The lighting of the world-famous bridge is another major collaboration designed especially for Vivid Sydney by 32 Hundred Lighting with partner, Intel, who is delighted to turn the Sydney Harbour Bridge into an interactive light experience using the Intel Core processor family. Lighting installation designed by Iain Reed and software design and production by Martin Bevz.

SKMU presents Dots Obsession – Love Transformed into Dots, a large-scale multi-media installation by Yayoi Kusama
Yayoi Kusama is one of the world’s most sought-after artists. She is still active and in recent decades has experienced what could be called a renaissance, in the form of exhibitions and presentations the world over. Her first large retrospective exhibition in the UK was at Tate Modern last year, and in 2013 she will hold large traveling exhibitions in Asia and South America.
SKMU is pleased to present one of Kusama’s ‘total installations’: Dots Obsession – Love Transformed into Dots. The work from 2006 is part of a larger series of room installations called Dots Obsession, which Kusama began making in the 1990s. Here her trademark, the polka dot, is spread across large ballons that hang from the ceiling, lye on the floor and are suspended throughout the room. All while Kusama herself is projected on a screen, covered in dots and eating flowers.
Dots Obsession – Love Transformed into Dots (2006) visually borders on the hallucinations Yayoi Kasama experienced as a child. During those episodes she experienced her environment as being completely covered with an infinitely repeating pattern. To cope with the phantom visions Kusama resorted to art. In her art one finds an almost hallucinatory intensity, and the forms, colours, light and repetition construe an environment that completely enfolds the viewer.
After studying traditional Japanese painting, Kusama, then in her 20s, moved to the United States. She soon formed friendships with prominent figures in the American art scene as Mark Rothko, Donald Judd, Frank Stella, Robert Morris, Claes Oldenburg, Andy Warhol,and the sculptor Joseph Cornell, who would later become her partner. In the 1970s she returned to Japan, where she still lives and works today. Through an artistic career spanning more than 70 years, she has achieved international fame for her artworks and her signature motif – polka dots.

Bingham Junction Light Rail Station, Midvale, UT
Utah Transit Authority
Utah Bit and Mine consists of two interactive light sculptures that celebrate the identity, history and values of Midvale—home to one of the largest copper mines in the world. Over Midvale’s history mining companies shaped the land, carving a huge descending spiral into the earth with cross-shaped bits. But the land shaped the society that organized itself around mining. These two sculptures face each other across the Midvale rail platform and influence each other electronically, echoing the symbiotic relationship between the land and the people who make their living from it.
The Bit and the Mine stare each other down across the light rail platform.

Palo Alto, CA
City of Palo Alto
A family of six sculptures placed throughout the plaza between the Palo Alto Main Library and Arts Center. The evolving series increases in complexity and expresses growth through a sequence. The sculptures are made up of multi-lingual phrases collected from the community, cut out of steel and welded together in three-dimensional lantern-like forms.
The six sculptures reward close scrutiny over many visits as people follow the phrases that cover their surfaces.
Point source lighting casts clear shadows to activate the space around the sculptures.
