The relationship of art and architecture is unique. Architecture itself is a (building) art. And sometimes, architecture is made for displaying and storing prestigious art. However, Vivid Sydney explores a completely new relationship between the two i.e. using architecture as a canvas for light and showcasing energetic and bright art projections on building facades. It makes one wonder about refreshing possibilities that can arise from creative collaboration between an Artist and an Architect.

Article on World Architecture News Metroblogs ‘ The Facade as a canvas of light’

Last Friday we published an article on World Architecture News Metroblogs titled ‘The facade as a canvas of light‘ that explores the relations and interactions between art and architecture during Vivid Sydney 2013.

Do you think the architectural facade contributes to the success of these artworks? Have you been to Vivid Sydney this year? Which art installations are your favourite ones?
