In its opening week, Sydney’s Vivid festival is lighting up iconic buildings and hosting live music, street performances and public talks until 8 June. As well as the large scale projections on public buildings such as the Sydney Opera House and the Museum of Contemporary Art, the festival features smaller scale art works around Circular Quay and Darling Harbour. One that will inspire the transport geeks and plane spotters, Space Folding, by Zina Kaye, transforms real-time aeroplane flight data into an immersive walk-in light installation of 1600 LED lights. The piece also takes that data and transforms it into music and sound in collaboration with gaming composer Peret von Sturmer. Read more: cnet.com.au
