Invincible Corals, Vivid Sydney


26-27 May 2023

The Cutaway, 1 Merriman St, Barangaroo NSW 2000


For all their fragility, coral reefs are powerful, too: over time, they can even subsume something as large as the USAT Liberty shipwreck off the coast of Bali, growing all over the structure and making it their home.

Inspired by a dive through the famed shipwreck, the artist created digital corals that can self-generate and grow upon any surface they’re projected onto, adapting to their new home - in this case, Vivid House. Engulfing the four walls, these strange, beautiful structures loom large, a testament to their secret might and tenacity even amid warming waters.
