Vivid lighting 2016 Sydney

Vivid light-art in the centre of Sydney

In the middle of June in Sydney the Vivid lighting festival starts. This unique festival is interesting for tourists and local people and has a big impact on the whole city. Vivid Light transforms Sydney into a wonderland of ‘light art’ sculptures, innovative light installations and grand-scale projections. All lighting objects are available for free.


This article is about an art object with the name “Sweep”. The Sweep object is very interesting because it uses dynamic lighting, original form and deep meditation idea. LEDs are controllable and located inside one hundred acrylic tubes standing four meters tall. When viewed from a distance this object provides the illusion of flying light with softly pulsing light and slowly moving tubes from the breeze.

Everything changes if you come closer and walking through the Sweep you will feel a sense of deep mediation as the large individual lights move softly and gracefully above and around them. You will be relaxing after Sweep and get into good mood because dynamic lighting has a gently calming effect.
