59 Productions was commissioned by the annual Sydney winter festival - Vivid LIVE - to create a new artwork for projection onto the sails of Sydney Opera House. The festival ran from 23 MAY - 9 JUNE 2014, with the piece playing on a continuous (15 minute) loop from 6pm to midnight every night.

You will see the architect - Utzon's - original concept sketches and blueprints spectacularly become the real, solid architectural phenomenon that is Sydney Opera House today. Our artists have used a huge variety of techniques to bring the building to life, both computer-generated and analogue, not least filming over a dozen scale models of the building being splattered with paint and pigments, melted with heat guns and shattered like ice.
