SYDNEY OPERA

Lighting the sails | extended version

The audiovisual staging of the Sydney Opera House is a poetic homage to the architecture and its constructional concept of the architect, Jørn Utzon. As Utzon said about his architecture he wanted to give it a human expression, the projected video layer in that same sense aims to establish an immediate, architectural expression.

Premiered on 25th of May 2012 in the context of Vivid Sydney – Lighting The Sails.
