Vivid Sydney is a glorious festival held every year Down Under, where lights are projected onto some of the city's most iconic buildings.

Landmarks like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge are illuminated with vibrant, mind-melting colours and designs.

With its white sails, the Opera House in particular makes the perfect backdrop for some of the most incredible projections.

Some of the exhibits scattered around downtown Sydney are interactive, like the "Cathedral of Light" in the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Some of the coolest works, though, involve Mother Nature.

The "Synthesis" work aims to shed scientific light on the Moreton Bay Fig, a huge, sprawling species of tree common on the city's waterfront.
