Using the facade of the Customs House building as a canvas, we created "Under the Harbour", a super-scale underwater projection experience for Vivid Sydney 2019.
Sydney Harbour is arguably the most beautiful harbour in the world. People come from far and wide to admire its shimmering beauty, but how often are you able to dive into its emerald depths?
“Under the Harbour” is the creative vision of Spinifex’s Los Angeles-based Design Director Ben Alpass. A surreal underwater encounter, it delves into a hyper-coloured multi-verse alive with neon sea creatures, botanical wonderlands, and unclassified oddities. As a rainy twilight gathers across the harbour, a giant octopus bursts out of the water and wraps its tentacles around the sun, dragging it under.
“Under the Harbour” is a dazzling new way to appreciate Sydney’s iconic harbour and Customs House, one of Australia’s most prominent heritage buildings during Vivid Sydney 2019.
