    Vivid Sydney 2015 is beautiful, challenging and immersive. The 18-day festival of light, music and ideas features many of the world's most important creative industry forums, an extraordinary free public exhibition of outdoor lighting sculptures and installations and a cutting-edge contemporary music program. Simply, Vivid Sydney is where art, technology and commerce intersect. And there is plenty of technology. But what is most fascinating is the way that technology absorbs every age and interest group. Watch three-year-olds wowed by the light play and stories running across the Custom House or illuminating the Museum of Contemporary Art. Watch pensioners sitting by the water past the Passenger Terminal watching the sails tell their own stories in light and image. Everywhere there is a glow, a brilliance, an installation, a chance to interact with technology, to watch a big screen, a small screen, a giant screen where a whole city including suburban Chatswood becomes a canvas for ideas. Editorial director, MIKE GEE, delivers a special three-part coverage of Vivid Sydney 2015. this is part two.

    It's about 3D projection, light, colour, multimedia and technology. It's Vivid Sydney 2011. First Brian Eno, then Laurie Anderson took on the task of turning the Sydney Opera House into Australia's largest canvas. For the Vivid Sydney Festival in 2011, curator Stephen Pavlovic selected French team, Superbien, which pushed the concept further than before. Superbien named its creation La Macula, a projected digital artwork which takes the sails of the Sydney Opera House on a swirling psychedelic journey. The artwork also includes a specially commissioned soundscape, which could be listened to at Circular Quay by tuning in to 90.9FM or through the Vivid Live iPhone App. And if that wasn't enough there were also more than 40 light art installations from local and international artists. Vivid ends June 13. This riot of colour was captured by ARN Managing Editor, Mike Gee.
