Neon colours and bold geometric designs!
To mark the festival’s 10th anniversary, award-winning artist Jonathan Zawada put his own stamp on one of our favourite geometric buildings, the Sydney Opera House.
The architect of Sydney Opera House, Jørn Utzon was a relatively unknown 38 year old Dane in January 1957 when his entry was announced winner of the international competition to design a ‘national opera house’ for Sydney’s Bennelong Point. His vision for a sculptural, curved building on the Harbour broke radically with the cube and rectangular shapes of modernist architecture. The building transformed his career and, in turn, transformed the image of an entire nation.
‘AS far as blank canvases go, you don’t get much bigger and more magnificent than the sails of the Opera House,’ the Daily Telegraph proclaims. To mark the festival’s 10th anniversary, award-winning North Coast artist Zawada was drafted to put his own colourful stamp on one of our favourite buildings.
His series of 23 kinetic digital sculptures, titled ‘Metamathemagical’, are inspired by the Australian environment. And what an incredibly spectacular site it is!
