Sydney’s iconic Harbour Bridge to be illuminated for world-first lighting installation at Vivid Sydney
The Sydney Harbour Bridge will be the centrepiece of an interactive light installation for Vivid Sydney, bringing world-class lighting artistry to one of Australia’s most internationally recognised landmarks. Vivid Sydney event partner, Intel Australia has teamed up with Sydney-based lighting innovators; 32 Hundred Lighting, to create an immersive projection onto the bridge’s western face which will be controlled by the public from an interactive touch screen. 32 Hundred Lighting will design the installation including 100,800 individual programmable LEDs and a state-of-the-art custom-designed software program with an interactive touch screen interface.
NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Trade and Investment Andrew Stoner said the extension of Vivid Light to a Sydney icon in collaboration with Intel foregrounded an ambitious expansion of Vivid Sydney in 2013. “It is a world-first that a structure of such international architectural significance will become the centrepiece of an interactive light projection”, said Mr Stoner.
