In 2012 my brothers Peter Greig and Tim Roche along with my sister in law Frances Greig and friend Jorden Martin were involved with the Sydney Vivid Festival. For those not familiar with this festival, it is an annual event of light, music and ideas along the Sydney Harbour foreshore. Pete, Tim, Frances and Jorden had several installations and displays along the wharf side of Sydney Harbour, outside the Sydney Dance Company.
Here are Frances, Peter and Tim inside one of their displays:
Walk This Way installation - the path would light up when movement was detected along the bridge.
This next installation was another interactive piece where the lights and colour would change according to the movement it detected from those standing in front of it. The kids had a great time with this one!
It's a fabulous festival for a lot of reasons... first of all, it's free to the public! You can walk from Wharf St along the foreshore right around to Circular Quay and onto the Opera House to see all of the lights and installations. What a spectacular backdrop! It's also great fun for the kids - many of the installations were interactive this year so they had a chance to play with light and sound. This festival embraces lots of different artists, giving them a chance to show the world some of their creative ideas.
Here's some more photos I took during the festival:
The Opera House also comes alive with colour and images projected onto it!
The Contemporary Art Museum was a wash of colour, as was the Customs House below.

I'm so proud of what Pete, Tim, Frances and Jorden achieved during this festival! It's not easy being picked to curate part of the show and their pieces really brought a lot of fun to the experience :)
The Vivd Festival is in Sydney each June. If you're in the area, I highly recommend checking it out!
