21 May 2012 - Aurecon’s specialist lighting and audio visual (AV) designers have helped to flood the city of Sydney with spectacular illumination as the Vivid Sydney festival takes over after dark from 6pm, Friday 25 May to Monday 11 June 2012.
Lighting designer, Destiny Paris, led a team of electrical, audio visual, structural façade and acoustic specialists, to produce ‘Water Droplet’, which was selected amongst high competition for the festival’s light sculptures programme.
The Water Droplet was a desirable contender for a space at this annual festival of light, music and ideas, as the water theme fitted in well with the waterscape that the festival walk weaves its way around, and the incorporation of sound had appeal for the judges.
“We are really excited about extending the possibilities of light interaction with the outside surrounding environment and showcasing our unique lighting capability to Sydneysiders,” said Destiny.
Teaming with sponsors, the design team heavily involved 3S Lighting who fabricated the sculpture, Hills SVL who provided the audio visual equipment and programming, Tridonic who provided the LED lighting, NHP who provided the electrical equipment, electricians from Adviance Energy, and MKF assembled the structure on-site. Materials sponsors include Paton Commercial Carpets, Teamsports, and Ultrafloor.
Located at Campbells Cove, the final Aurecon installation will weigh 1.5 tonne and sit on an 8 tonne concrete base.
The festival includes a range of artistic collaborations, public talks and debates from leading creative thinkers from Australia and around the world, celebrating Sydney as the creative hub of Asia Pacific.
Destiny added, “We consistently strive to set and meet new challenges to deliver industry leading illumination design solutions for our clients. This opportunity enables our team to collaborate and stretch our creativity to create a mood and colour pattern to stimulate and impress the general public.”
