Customs House, Vivid Sydney

These light projections on Customs House at Circular Quay were displayed during the Vivid Sydney festival. "Unfamiliar Customs" was created by The Electric Canvas, transforming this sandstone building's facade with a series of 3D-mapped animation sequences. The projections both celebrate and sometimes mock the iconic architecture in a playful creation reflecting its 160 years standing on the shore of Sydney Harbour.

  8. Re your comment. I don't have Photoshop (extremely expensive), just Photoshop Elements. What I'm playing with is a plug in called Nik Silver Efex, which I think I'm going to buy.

  13. I came across a free plug in that's quite good. Check out Virtual Photographer. You have to have an editing program for it to run in.
