Steel Color Australia are currently sponsoring an installation at Vivid Sydney 2016
Vivid Sydney, now in its eighth year, is Australia’s major event in winter and is recognised as the largest event of its kind in the world combining light, music and ideas. Vivid Sydney is owned, managed and produced by Destination NSW, the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency.
Vivid Sydney is where art, technology and commerce intersect. The program features large scale light installations and projections; music performances and collaborations; and creative ideas, discussion and debate. All three celebrate Sydney as a creative hub of the Asia-Pacific.
PTOLEMi is an architectural installation that swirls along the edge of Campbells Cove, an abstract representation of the cultural values and artistic practices of the ‘iGeneration’.
PTOLEMi is highly innovative in its form, construction and digital content. Visitors enjoy immersive experiences, enabled by the use of embedded sensors and media platforms using sound, video and graphics. LED and interactive technology add dynamism to the otherwise static structure.
The swirling pattern that forms the structure and surface of PTOLEMi was constructed and developed by computation and advanced engineering whilst utilising basic construction principles.
