Sydney Opera House, Vivid Live

Ramus played a central role in producing the first double-sided projections on the Sydney Opera House sails for SmartLight 2009, now known as Vivid Live.

Ramus helped foster a collaboration between the creative forces of Brian Eno and the Sydney Opera House alongside the technical expertise of Electric Canvas. This combination of creative vision and technical skill resulted in a truly spectacular project that captured the collective imaginations of communities locally and globally. Sydney Opera House Chief Executive, Richard Evans stated the effect of the project was “…taking the art of the opera house and raising it to a different level”.

We revisited this approach in 2010 collaborating with artists Laurie Anderson and Lou Reed. Vivid has now become a flagship creative event for the City of Sydney and the Opera House.
