State Library, Vivid Sydney, Macquarie Visions

The State Library of New South Wales on Macquarie Street featured light projections as part of Macquarie Visions at this year's Vivid Sydney Festival. The theme of the display was Words On The Street, featuring documents and words that showcase Australia and the people from 1810. The library is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year and is home to many Macquarie items and artefacts.


  1. Hurrah for libraries. We have lovely libraries in Greensboro but I think this one is my newfound FAVORITE. Right now ours are in jeopardy as funding is such an issue. I'd love to see the inside of this beauty!


  2. I never tire of your beautiful light shots -- and libraries are among my very favorite places to hang out. So this is my favorite Vivid Sydney so far!

  3. Very cool. At first I thought you'd been playing around in Photoshop!

  4. Hi Jim

    Many thanks for your comment.

    You asked me about this link?...

    I probably meant I had you listed on Blogger's Follower fuction.

    I also do a German blog, where I have a German-language blogroll...

    Now forgive my terrible memory, but didn't I originally stumble across you commenting on some German blog somewhere?

    Or were you, as your message appeared to imply, merely using Google's Translation facility?

    It is very unusual to find a German-speaking Australian, unless they have Austrian, Swiss or German blood, that's why I was so curious...

    Wishing you all the very best

  19. Wow these are awesome photos! My husband & I went for a ride on the city cat from the Regatta Hotel to South Bank in Brisbane a few weeks ago & they also project light images onto the bridges on the give such a wonderful effect. Thanks for sharing!

  20. Katherine, I've heard about those light projections on the bridge in Brisbane and look forward to seeing them sometime.
