Circular Quay, Vivid Sydney, pylons and walkway

These pylons and walkway at Circular Quay have been illuminated for the Vivid Sydney festival which runs until Monday night. "(B)right on time" was created by Tim Carr, Tim Hunt, Jo Black, Carter Leung and Mark Gilder. The bridge above carries the railway line to Circular Quay station and the Cahill Expressway sit above that. The vibrations of the trains coming and going above are synchronised with pulsating lights, varying the colour and intensity.

  1. mmm ... not keen on thus walkway whenever I am beneath it! Very trashy at the best of times. To have it pulsate with the crossing train shows a certain taste, methinks.

  3. This is such a beautifully designed/landscaped area compared with the dull vista I saw quite some years ago! Adore the purple lighting!

  7. Julie, they certainly did wonders with a spot that's more than a bit ordinary.
    Ann, I almost missed the fact that the colours changed but when I returned later there happened to be a train going by and saw the light show.

  10. A wonderful use of this space. All your Vivid Sydney images this past week are great, Jim... I especially like the polar bear ice statue and the bench!

  11. I was going to go down and have a look at this festival but the weather is not all that nice so I think I will stay home and enjoy your shots instead.

    Interesting that Julie doesn't like that walkway, funny thing is that I've always liked it ... a sense of modern city so close to old city.
