100 YEARS
OF SYDNEY HARBOUR

The Pulse

Tidal charts Sydney’s evolution from the early 1900s to the present day. We were invited to work alongside Peter Thompson from Hatch Australia and Reuben Young from AMP to create a truly unique experience for Vivid 2017.

Located in Loftus Lane, the installation utilised a 28m transparent screen surface to immerse the audience in Sydney history. The story is told through waves of visualisations that sweep over the audience representing 100 years of collected environmental data. Tide, mood phase, eclipse and water temperature was analysed and used to manipulate speed, fluidity and colour of the transforming design.

The animation lead Christian Heinrich used a variety of tools including Touch Designer, Realflow and Maya to generate this complex layered piece. Creating bespoke data sampling techniques and workflows to turn big data into design.
