Digital Wattle for Vivid Sydney, James Pendergrast

Vivid Sydney is an annual light and music festival:

Colouring the city with creativity and inspiration, Vivid Sydney highlights include the hugely popular immersive light installations and projections; performances from local and international musicians at Vivid LIVE at Sydney Opera House and the new Vivid Ideas Exchange at the MCA featuring public talks and debates from leading global creative thinkers.Vivid Sydney is a major celebration of the creative industries and the biggest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, attracting over 400,000 attendees in 2011. Now heading into its fourth year, Vivid Sydney was ranked in the Top Ten global ideas festivals by the influential Guardian newspaper in the UK.

James Pendergrast, from the Between Art & Architecture Research Cluster in Honours, is in Sydney now installing his contribution:

We are almost finished with the construction side of the Digital Wattle, everything seems to be running smoothly, its been great working on site with all the other artists/designers in the area. The exhibition opens friday 6pm, so we have a couple of days left to finish things up, tweak it and play with the display content etc. Other than that, its looking great, well worth all the work (4km of wiring and 4500 solder joints and counting!)
