This tour is brought to you by FreeGuides, designed to provide you with the ultimate Vivid experience, enriched with an understanding of each unique artwork and their captivating stories.\n\nBefore we embark on this remarkable journey, we wish to clarify that this tour has not been produced in association with Vivid. All information provided has been carefully collated from the official Vivid website, and meticulously structured into this self-guided tour by the dedicated staff at FreeGuides. Our goal is to make the magic of Vivid accessible to everyone, whether you're a local or a visitor, and to allow you to experience the enchanting world of Vivid at your own pace.\n\nAs we traverse the beautiful city of Sydney, we wish to acknowledge the original custodians of this land. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their enduring connection to the land, their unique cultures and heritage. We pay our respects to the Gadigal of the Eora Nation, who are the traditional custodians of this place we now call Sydney.\n\nThis tour has been designed for an in-person experience. As you step from one artwork to the next, we hope to provide a rich context and understanding of each piece, while you soak in the mesmerizing light installations around you. We invite you to not just witness the spectacle, but to immerse yourself in it, to engage with it, and to create unforgettable memories along the way.\n\nNow, prepare yourself for a journey through the heart of Vivid 2023.

They form a ceiling of light above us, their lines curving and intertwining, drawing our eyes on an enchanting dance of light. These are not just beams of light; these are beacons, representing the unique worlds within each one of us.\n\nBut the magic doesn't stop at individuality. \"Sonder\" is a celebration of connection, of the beautiful phenomena that occur when these individual worlds intertwine, much like these LED tubes you see above.\n\nAs you stand beneath this captivating display, remember that this installation carries with it a piece of its home. \"Sonder\" proudly represents Australia, showcasing the country's innovative spirit and artistic prowess on this grand stage of Vivid.\n\nTake a moment to embrace the essence of \"Sonder\".

This immersive installation reimagines the façade of Customs House, beautifully projecting the charm and elegance of interior design onto its exterior, hence the name, \"Inside Out\".\n\nThis installation is a homage to the rich history of Australian décor and style, spanning three notable decades - the '60s, '70s, and '80s. The enchanting visuals you see before you are brought to life by the Sydney creative studio Spinifex Group, drawing from an expansive collection of more than 7,500 works curated by the Australian Museum of Design.\n\nLet's take a moment to appreciate the intricate details, the layering, and the artistic flair projected onto this giant canvas. You're not just looking at patterns; you're witnessing history, the evolution of design, and the creative spirit of Australia.\n\nIn the spotlight, among many ground-breaking designers, is the artistry of Florence Broadhurst, Australia's leading designer of wallpaper and fabrics. Her influence and unique style are evident in the stunning mix of florals, birdlife, and the bold colours that encapsulate the post-World War II era.\n\nAs you observe \"Inside Out\", try to spot the through-line of designs that incorporate nature over the years. This is a reflection of Australia's deep-rooted connection with its vibrant natural environment, beautifully interwoven into the fabric of its design history.\n\nTake a step back and let the grandeur of \"Inside Out\" envelop you, appreciating the unmissable blend of artistry, history, and style.
