VIVID this week

Image
What's new?

An amazing selfie of sorts projects your image into Darling Harbour with the use of three super cameras. Eyes on the Harbour makes you the star of the show at the Laser-Dragon Water-Theatre. Using groundbreaking Intel® RealSense™ technology, your face will be projected on a giant waterscreen 20m above the surface of Darling Harbour, in the middle of one of Vivid Sydney’s most popular attractions.

Just step up to the Intel® booth and have your face scanned by Intel® RealSense™ cameras. Either go completely natural or choose one of five wild looks, and a giant image of your face will be projected high over the waters of Darling Harbour. You’ll even have a copy emailed to you as a souvenir.

Intel® Eyes on the Harbour rears forth every half hour during Vivid Sydney, in between the Laser-Dragon Water-Theatre shows.

The ever-popular Light Totem continues at Circular Quay and the Fountain is ongoing at Martin Place.

Light in the Darkness: VIVID 2016

Image
According to their website, Vivid Sydney is a 23-day festival of light, music and ideas. Vivid Sydney features many of the world's most important creative industry forums, a mesmerising free public exhibition of outdoor lighting sculptures and installations and a cutting-edge contemporary music program.

Vivid Sydney is where art, technology and commerce intersect. It begins on 27 May and lasts until 18 June. Vivid Sydney was voted Australia’s Best Event in 2013 and Best Tourism Event in 2013, 2014 and 2015.

And each year the festival grows, in locations and in numbers of visitors. This year the talks in 150 sessions will range from Chatswood to Randwick to Marrickville and feature topics like "Turn Interaction Into Action: Daily Habits For Innovating" and "Creating a Sense of Place for Migrant Communities" Speakers include Kučka and Margaret Zhang, Tom Dawkins and Myf Warhurst.

Broken hearted (Love, whose month is ever May)

Image
It's a rather odd phrase-- broken hearted. There are medical influences that cause the heart of a man to tear, but that's not what anyone really means when they use this phrase. It has to do with pain and aches on the inside, perhaps regrets and suffering sometimes caused by others, and sometimes caused by ourselves. Usually this has to do with a situation of discomfort, and a desire on the part of the hearted to wish things could improve.

Some people really don't know how to handle other folks; most of us wish we did, but admit that we have a long way to go. So what is a broken heart? It's used in reference to a state of extreme grief or sorrow, typically caused by the death of a loved one or the ending of a romantic relationship. As in "she broke my heart" or "that one is going to grow up to break many hearts" and such.

There is another use of the phrase, too.
