The annual Sydney Festival is here again, featuring contemporary art installations, music, and presentations that define Sydney.
This year, I visited two art installations. First up was The Ephemeral City, a cardboard city created by Sydneysiders visiting the installation, at the new Barangaroo district.
It was impressive to see the life-size structures created voluntarily by the community coming together.
You may be wondering how the tops of the buildings were built. So here’s a video showing exactly how it’s done!
Some more photos below.
The next art piece was a 20 minute car ride away, the Musical Gardens at Vaucluse House. The grounds of Vaucluse House were huge! It was the size of a decent sized public botanical gardens.
The ‘musical gardens’ featured birdsong and original instrumental (mainly woodwind) pieces broadcast through speakers in a small garden within the grounds.
Although the ‘musical gardens’ installation was small, it was great to see the grand Vaucluse House and grounds.
