Ken Done and Sydney. A love story spanning 80 years

A master of colour, Ken captures the joy of Sydney like no other artist and this vibrant animation projected onto Customs House shows how his beloved city informs all his work. It is a story of optimism, colour, and sheer delight

Powerhouse – We Dream the City

by on May.29, 2022, under Photography

New at this years Vivid Sydney is a set of installations along the length of the Goods Line Walk. This runs from near the Powerhouse Museum in Ultimo through the University of Technology Sydney Haymarket Campus to George St

At the Powerhouse Museum end we have this installation titled We Dream the City

NIKON Z 7 + NIKKOR Z 14-30mm f/4 S @ 14 mm, 1/4 sec at f/5, ISO 2000 x 108 Frames

Fragments of lost worlds and forgotten faces flicker across the back of the Powerhouse Museum, animating visions of our city streets through time. As you stroll past, the projections become a 130m long meditation on the many ideals, innovations and transformations that have shaped Sydney in its emergence as a modern metropolis. We Dream invites us to reflect on how we are collectively shaping the future of the urban realm

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 next to the ICC

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 🙂
