SYDNEY SHINES BRIGHT AS VIVID TAKES OVER

SYDNEY has a real glow about it at the moment with the annual Vivid Sydney festival consuming the city.

Around 100 light installations are lighting up Sydney, projecting colourful artwork throughout the city including on local landmarks such as the Harbour Bridge and Opera House.

Vivid Sydney is the world's largest festival of lights, music and ideas and this year features more than 150 artists from 23 countries.

"Sydney's most iconic landmarks will be lit up in a symphony of colour and movement, attracting visitors from across the world," says NSW Premier Mike Baird.  "Vivid is a creative festival for a global audience and its popularity is evident in the 1.7 million visitors who attended last year's festival."

This year Vivid Sydney will celebrate Australian Indigenous culture with the Songlines projection appearing on the sails of the iconic Sydney Opera House.

The animation showcases the work of six renowned Indigenous artists: Karla Dickens, Djon Mundine OAM, Reko Rennie, Gabriella Possum Nungurrayi, Donny Woolagoodja and the late Gulumbu Yunipingu.

Meanwhile, Darling Harbour's laser-dragon water-theatre features a water-screen mounted on a 13 metre robotic arm floating high above fifty-six fountains.

The laser-dragon water-theatre show includes four video projected water-screens on which dancers are projected moving to a music score created by The Presets.

The Sydney Harbour will be illuminated by 1640 lighting fixtures tubes, containing 72,000 individual LEDs, and 6,700 individuals LEDS in 140 cans.

The festival commenced on May 27 and runs until June 18.
