Expressions of interest open for Vivid Sydney 2011

With Vivid Sydney set to take place from 27 May to 13 June 2011, light artists, designers and architects are encouraged to submit creative and energy-efficient light and sound installations to feature in Vivid Light, a nightly public exhibition during the event.

The theme for Vivid Light 2011 this year is ‘Fiat Lux – Let there be light’, placing an emphasis on low-energy lighting techniques, public interaction and immersive artistic design.

“We are looking for artists who can bring dynamic and engaging lighting concepts to Sydney’s well-known public spaces in a way that uses minimal energy and encourages people to think more creatively about urban design and light,” said Mary-Anne Kyriakou-Bracke, co-curator of the light sculpture installations for Vivid Light.

EOI positions are available for Australian artists, designers, landscape architects and creative teams, plus two positions for university students and one position for an ‘emerging artist’ (under the age of 35). Successful applicants for Vivid Light will be offered funding of up to $15,000 to cover design and conceptual work, construction, materials, delivery and installation.

Proposals close 5pm, Tuesday 1 March 2011. For more information contact or visit
