Every year Sydney is transformed into a magical world for the annual Vivid Festival. The highlight of the event is Lighting the Sails, when the Sydney Opera House is transformed into a huge canvas for incredible light projections.

Luxx were extremely privileged to be invited by Spinifex Group to contribute visuals for the 2017 event, Audio Creatures. Working closely with the awe-inspiring Sydney Director Ash Bolland and paired with tailor-made soundscapes by Brazil’s foremost sound designer Amon Tobin.

Luxx teamed up with the talented crew at Never Sit Still and dove deep to realise Bolland’s vision of immense creatures.  Reminiscent of deep ocean life, exotic flora and alien ecosystems which consume the Opera House in a world of colour and light, transporting onlookers through a visceral and magical world.
