Vivid Sydney is underway at the moment, lighting up the city’s landmarks and cultural centers with swathes of color. As part of the festival Sydney Harbour Bridge has been turned into an interactive light sculpture. Two years in the making Colour The Bridge was created by production company 32 Hundred Lighting in partnership with Intel, turning the arching steel into a huge sculpture that can be seen from miles away. It utilizes the entire Western facade of the bridge, covering it with 2,000 LEDs and over half a mile of fiber optics. The light display is controlled by the public who can choose from a palette of colors using a large touchscreen and a simple interface. Anyone is free to walk up and create their own unique “painting” and see it come to life on the bridges iconic arches.
