Sydney Opera House with a projected woman on frontAustralia’s Festival of Lights is transforming Sydney’s famous landmarks using wild imagination and cutting edge 3-D projectors beaming images from a distance.

The evening lit “sails” of the iconic Opera House overlooking the harbor suddenly appeared to break out in cracks and holes, and flutter in the wind. As a finale, its surface peels back as if skin, a hand punches through it, and finally a giant woman stretches out across the surface appearing to tip toe across.

The German art collective, Urbanscreen, has called its work a sort of architectural “remixing”, like a DJ, and says it sees the Opera House “as a stage”.
