Frost* (Sydney) will partner with Arup to create a unique art installation for Vivid Light, one of the most popular programs of Vivid Sydney, the Southern Hemisphere’s biggest annual celebration of light, music, and ideas. The consultants will join more than 60 local and international creative practitioners, whose works have been selected to transform the city into a colorful after-dark canvas of interactive light art sculptures, innovative installations, and grand scale projections, including the famous illumination of the Sydney Opera House sails.
The team will create an interactive environment through light and sound called RICOCHET, for the Suez Canal laneway in The Rocks. The piece will feature an intersecting network of laser beams, using the long narrow form of the Suez Canal to create a laser web, which reacts to the movement of people within the space through sound and color change. ARIA Award-winning producer and songwriter Lee Groves will create custom audio tracks for the work.
