If you’re short on time, the Rocks is the best place to visit in order to sample Vivid Sydney (see my previous post). The Museum of Contemporary Art possibly had the best projections in the city, with the light technicians taking inspiration from the artworks inside the museum. There was also an excellent view of Circular Quay and the Opera House, which I shall cover in my next post. Most of the projections in Vivid had some kind of background music (which one of my friends helped arrange, coincidentally!) but it was too noisy to hear due to all the visitors.
There were a lot of smaller installations around the rest of the Rocks:
This was just one small area of the city, and it was easy to see why the event pulled in a lot of tourists. I was impressed by the Christmas projections, but Vivid took everything to a new level. My next Vivid post will be on two iconic Sydney buildings: the Opera House and Customs House.
