The Electric Canvas Presents "City Life"

The Electric Canvas presents "City Life" as part of Vivid Sydney. Using the ornate architecture of Customs House as a skeleton, an elaborate city within a city is created. As the morning sun rises, the buildings, streets, overpasses and infrastructure emerge out of Customs House, like an organism coming to life. Hundreds of people, cars, buses and trains traverse the city. Mercurial weather patterns, traffic lights flashing, horns honking, the everyday hustle and bustle.
