Circular Quay, Vivid Sydney, geodesic dome

The Vivid Sydney Festival is an annual festival of light, music and ideas which is running from 23 May to 9 June 2014. The "Geodesic Light Dome" has been installed along the Circular Quay foreshore with the city skyline as a backdrop. A geodesic dome is a spherical lattice shell, made up of triangular faces which contain smaller triangles. The artwork was created by Mark Dyson and Oliver Tanner and is illuminated at night with strips of lighting, built into the structure which form waves of colour and light that shift over and around the dome.

  2. Are children allowed to play in that dome? If not, they should be!
