IN PICTURES: Vivid 2013 (1) - Sydney lights up

ARN Editor-In-Chief, Mike Gee, was out for the launch of Vivid 2013 in Sydney on a rainy night. However, he still managed to capture plenty of photos using just a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT4 digital camera. As ever Vivid is about the mix of technology and art. It is billed as a Festival of Light, Music and Ideas. This is the first in a series of slideshows capturing this essential event that runs from May 24-June 10.

  • Vivid 2013 officially lit up Sydney and the Opera House at 6pm on May 24. It was wet and windy but the lights shone through. The sails light display artwork was produced by The Spinifex Group this year and is entitled Play.
