Vivid Sydney, festival of light, music and ideas, officially opened at 6pm on 26 May 2017 with Dreamscape, a series of large-scale light installations that included the lighting of The Sydney Harbour Bridge and lighting of the sails on the Sydney Opera House.
Digital Media World was at the opening to video the sails of the Sydney Opera House as they were set in motion with 'Audio Creatures', a procession of fantastical plants and animals curated and designed by director Ash Bolland. Viewers watch as the creatures morph across the sails from one to the next before their eyes. The visual content was produced and animated by the Spinifex Group, also located in Sydney. The audio part of the title refers to a specially composed soundtrack by Brazilian electronic musician Amon Tobin.
