What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Vivid Sydney



Sydney, Australia, is host to an annual 23-day arts festival called Vivid Sydney, which combines music performances and light installations. It is one of the city’s higher honors to be chosen as the lighting designers for the Sydney Opera House, and this year’s designer really knocked it out of the park. Inspired by local and planet-wide threats to sea creatures and plant life, Ash Bolland covered the City’s most recognizable structure with aquatic creatures native to the area.

Check out the Vivid Sydney Arts Festival on their website, on Facebook, and on Instagram.

As fantastic as the photos are, it’s really the videos that illustrate the magnificent, animated lightshows. I’ve long wanted to visit Australia, and these videos are so inspiring, I’m definitely adding this show to my list of things to see when I retire!

  3. If you can’t get to Sydney during Vivid, you can always hit Melbourne for its single night event, White Night, which starts at sunset and finishes at sunrise. Disclaimer: proud Melburnian 🙂

  5. That is very cool. I found the videos I watched to be mesmerising. My kids liked the tree frog leaping about. I have cousins who live in Australia but I have unfortunately never been. I would absolutely love to travel around Australia and New Zealand some time.
