OPTICA brought new dimension to the world’s most beautiful harbour for Vivid Sydney 2014.

aMBUSH Gallery continues its relationship with Vivid Sydney to shine spotlights on some of Sydney’s proudest assets. During Vivid Sydney 2014, aMBUSH was proud to present OPTICA, a multi-site exhibition of light installations in and around Cockle Bay Wharf, against the background of the world’s most beautiful harbour. OPTICA’s artists and their works were commissioned by Sydney lighting design duo McDermott and Baxter, and were situated both outdoors and inside some of the Wharf’s cornerstone venues. Home Nightclub played  host HOLEANDCORNER, a Vivid Live event featuring DJ sets by world class DJs Hot Chip, Henry Saiz, Matthew Dear and more. With Sydney Harbour as the stage and Cockle Bay Wharf the best seats in the house, French water show and lighting design experts Aquatique Show International presented Vivid Aquatique, a free public display of dancing water and shimmering light transformed the harbour as we know it.
