Vivid Chatswood
May 27 @ 5:30 pm – Jun 17 @ 10:30 pm

The buildings, shopping malls, streets and laneways of the Chatswood CBD are reinvented as a funky, retro-futuristic smart city with ingenious installations and light sculptures. All are inspired by the ‘Steampunk’ design aesthetic of 19th century steam-powered machinery.

At Chatswood Interchange more than 9000 spheres glow above in Voxelscape, and a pumping steam engine is created with interactive projection in Gear Shift; a glittering canopy of light in Chatswood Mall leads to Crossword, which sends out barrages of hidden light messages; an explosion of interactive light greets diners as they enter the Asian street-food hot spot, Hawker Lane in Westfield Chatswood; meanwhile, Light Bounce at Chatswood Chase Sydney encourages visitors to wander by day through a sparkling forest of refractive light.

The facade of The Concourse hosts Future City/Smart City, which follows a flight of whimsical dirigibles to an airbourne, sustainable community; on returning to earth visitors peer into the reflective pool to discover the submerged magic of Steampunk Waterworld.
