The Sydney Opera House fantasmagorically transformed for Vivid Sydney festival
Zawada is a cross-discipline artist best known for his unique approach to art and design. Weaving both analogue and digital techniques, he displays the back and forth interplay between manual physical labour and disembodied digital processes.
For today the artist collaborated with top music acts such as Flume, The Presets, Mark Pritchard and Moses Sumney. He is uniquely suited to bring the Sails to life for Vivid Sydney, when the entirety of the Opera House is taken over by incredible music for Vivid LIVE including Solange, Mazzy Star, Ice Cube and DREAMS.

For those unable to attend Lighting of the Sails in person, the Sydney Opera House will once again stream the full broadcast live from the Sydney Opera House Facebook page and its official site on Friday 25 May, 2018. And during the festival there will be audio-described tours of the Sails for visually-impaired patrons on selected evenings.
