The organisers of Vivid Sydney 2011, a free annual festival of light, music and ideas taking place in May/June 2011, are inviting light artists, designers and architects from across Australia to submit proposals for creative, energy-efficient light and sound installations to feature in a nightly sculpture walk as part of the festival.
The vivid light installations will transform the city’s harbourside precinct into an eclectic sensory experience. The theme for 2011 is ‘Fiat Lux – Let there be light’. Submissions should consider low-energy lighting techniques, public interaction and immersive artistic design.
Co-curators Mary-Anne and Ingo Kyriakou-Bracke are seeking creative and engaging lighting concepts that will encourage the public to think about urban design and light in a creative way. “With Vivid Light set to attract creative industry members from all around the world, this is an excellent chance for Australian lighting artists to showcase their innovative aesthetics and latest technologies to the international design community,” said Mary-Anne Kyriakou-Burke.
EOI positions are available for Australian artists, designers, landscape architects and creative teams, including two positions for university student submissions and one position for an ‘emerging artist’ under 35 years old. Request for submissions include pavement, wall, facade and foyer treatments.
Successful applicants will be offered design fees of up to $15,000 to cover design and conceptual work, construction, materials, delivery and installation.
*Submission deadline* 5pm Tuesday 1 March 2011
*Vivid Sydney runs from 27 May 13 June 2011*.
