Vivid

So much for getting these up over last weekend, right? I went to see Vivid Sydney 2012 with Wailam not last Tuesday, but the one before (so these are more than a week late, oops). If you don't know, Vivid is a festival which mainly involves light installations around Circular Quay and the Rocks. I really liked it this year, especially all the interactive ones. It's over on Monday, so be quick if you want to check it out!



Someone's cute kid in front of a Pacman installation.

Pretty colours... drew me in like a moth (as in, like I was the moth... I'm not drawn to moths, I hate them).



I do love my gifs. Maybe I should try and gif all of them next year, ha.

"Is that girl... feeling up the Opera House?"


I didn't really get the Opera House one this year, to be honest... but it was cool.

The Customs House one was probably the best. It was a sequence of animated scenes, almost like a short film of sorts.

I went on a bit of an unplanned break from blogging there... I was unwell last week (again, I know) and I couldn't stay sitting up (let alone look at a computer screen) for too long without getting really dizzy. My friend diagnosed me with an ear infection (who needs the family doctor when you're a med student), but I'm all better now and I'm going to spend what remains of this Saturday night to catch up on your blogs!

  1. Yes, it was from Glebe! It's like a fluffy Pretzel, you can't explain it's lovely flavour! I am so in love with 'Electra Heart' right now, it's been on replay for the last month! Well, if I see you around campus, I'll definately be saying hello :D I've actually never been to Vivid, and heard so much amazing hype around it! Aww, that is a Pacman, I saw it as dinosaur legs, hahaha. '.. feeling up the Opera house?' has got to be the most original caption HAHA, the poor thing looks like she's holding on for dear life. Wow, the Customs House lights are insanely creative, that's so super cool. I think I have an ear infection too because it's been heaps sore this past weekend, but I'm glad you're feeling better! Take care Jane!

    1. The green bits are actually the tracks (I'm not sure what you call them) which the pacman thing runs around. The Opera House comment is courtesy of my friend, haha.

  4. Vivid this year was quite a spectacle I reckon, though I didn't get the shadowy figures on the Opera House either. I love your gifs; I feel like I'm standing in front of the buildings, staring at the lights again :)

    Haha, love the 'feeling up' photo :P
    Aww you poor thing, I'm glad you're feeling better

  6. I thought the display on the Opera House this year was way too modern. I don't think it was really suited for the audience. I preferred the abstract patterns from the first year of Vivid.

    1. Yeah I definitely agree. I was like '...I know there must be a concept behind this... but I can't think of it'.

  35. Aw man, Vivid beyond the Opera House looked amazing! Where was all this stuff. I was stuck at work the whole time, I didn't get a chance to check out the rest of it. Well, I did see that giant chandelier from far away...

    Your photos rock, they actually make the sails look good, and I thought they looked pretty shitty.
