Campbells Cove, Vivid Sydney, Fire Water

Fire Water during the Vivid Sydney festival was a theatrical spectacle that combined flames and the harbour. The show at Campbells Cove at The Rocks was a recreation of the fire that sank the convict ship The Three Bees in 1814 and sent its cannon balls blazing across the harbour. The performance included an Aboriginal smoking ceremony and live music performed by Coda.

Customs House, Vivid Sydney

Customs House is a heritage building at Circular Quay that has been turned into a cultural destination. It features a library, function rooms, a restaurant and bar. During the Vivid Sydney festival, the building was bathed in blue light and had laser displays flashed across the facade (above). The Smart Light installation in the forecourt (below) known as Lumenocity was an abstracted energy consumption map of the Sydney CBD.

A full-scale model of the Sydney CBD is embedded beneath a glass floor at ground level and artwork is displayed throughout the building. Green Void currently hangs in the atrium (below) and it was also one of the objects featured in the laser display.
