Vivid House – Vivid Sydney 2022

by on May.28, 2022, under Photography

Do yourself a favour. If you are or are thinking of visiting Vivid Sydney; get yourself down to Vivid House in Darling Quarter at the eastern edge of Tumbalong Park, inbetween the ICC and the city

Imagine if you will, that you were going to build the most INSANE home theatre setup…

Well you’d put in a whole wall TV; obviously; except in this instance you’d make the LED screen over 5 metres tall and 10 metres wide. Of course you wouldn’t stop there – you do it on all four walls of the room so you’re completely surrounded! Then you’d put a bunch of projectors on the ceiling so they’d project across the whole floor as well. Next you’d put computer controlled motion lighting systems… well… everywhere – dozens and dozens of systems above and also hanging from the ceiling, around the bottom of the walls, hell under and coming up from the floor. Smoke machines in the floor – hell yes – tick. The most kick ass sound system with dozens and dozens of speakers… again everywhere including under the floor – tick 🙂

This is what the crazy genius wizards at Technical Direction Company bring you – combining for an insane immersive light and sound experience in Vivid House

There are five different sets of content on offer in here, and each runs for approximately 5 to 10 minutes

Game Over

If you want the full experience I’d suggest Progressum as my pick – it’s dark, moody and all encompassing, and uses the space and technology to it’s fullest

If rave, techno and house music party is your scene then Temple of Joy fits the bill. This will be a kids favourite too with it’s bright colours, shapes and action

Three five minute sequences form part of Floating World

Sub-Aqua – Ancient Worlds explores an ancient underworld; Agora also gives you a mysterious marine underwater experience

Lastly Soup provides an awesome artistic treat – another of my personal favourites

I’ll post an animated sequence of selected images across all five sets of content soon…

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