More than 100,000 LEDs were ablaze in a kaleidoscope of colour on the Sydney Harbour Bridge tonight as the NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment, Andrew Stoner, previewed the iconic structure’s highly anticipated interactive light installation, a new spectacular addition to this year’s Vivid Sydney, ahead of the festival’s opening night on Friday 24 May.
A world-first immersive projection following a collaboration between Vivid partner, Intel Australia, and Sydney-based lightwork innovators 32 Hundred Lighting, extends the Vivid Light Walk across the harbour into the North Sydney precinct for the first time.
The Deputy Premier illuminated the western face of the iconic structure in a colourful rainbow of bold pinks, reds, blues and greens from an interactive touchscreen located on the Luna Park boardwalk. He was joined by Kate Burleigh, Managing Director Intel Australia & New Zealand; North Sydney Mayor Jilly Gibson; and Iain Reed from 32 Hundred Lighting.
“Vivid Sydney has created a historic moment for Sydney – showing the magnificent Sydney Harbour Bridge in a way never seen before and for visitors to interact with one of our most iconic structures, every night of the 18-day festival,” Mr Stoner said.
