For the first year ever and to celebrate its 200th birthday, the renowned Royal Botanic Garden Sydney will explode with many types of illumination during Vivid Sydney. A highlight of the features in the gardens is Synthesis by the awesomely creative Ample Projects team. A heritage listed Moreton Bay Fig Tree in the Royal Botanic Gardens plays canvas to these beautiful light projections.

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger – so click any of the images below to see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer.

Here is a little animated sequence of twenty one (21) of those frames. In practice however the still frame doesn’t capture the feeling or the mood of the smooth flowing animations and lighting as it moves progressively up and through the tree. This is one of those ones you have to see in person :).

Celebrating these magnificent organisms, and the role they play in ecosystems around our world, this intricately 3D mapped projection show will explore the beauty and function of these ancient wonders.
