Part of Vivid Sydney, the festival that celebrates light, music and ideas, video projections are mapped onto the shapes of the sails to create a 3D effect. This is the work of Superbien, a creative French agency renowned for its lighting design with animation, photography and projections that are tailored to specific environments.

Now in its third year, the festival is popular with visitors, Sydneysiders and photographers vying for a vantage position.

Below are images of the Sydney Opera House like you’ve never seen it before.
