Jonathan Zawada
Vivid 2018 – Metamathemagical

A large scale video and audio spatial experience

Jonathan Zawada was appointed as the Director of the Lighting of the Sails of the Sydney Opera House for Vivid 2018. He was asked to create a 15 minute projection mapped video work which was projected onto the Sydney Opera House for the three week duration of the festival.

Jonathan’s work drew upon the inspiration of Australian flora and fauna geology, speaking directly to Australia’s distinctly elemental environment that transends time and space.

The piece was accompanied with a synced immersive elemental soundscape that could be heard at different vantage points around the harbour foreshore.
