Monochrome Weekend - Vivid -

Argyle Cut by Mark Dyson
This significant historic arch is part of the support system for the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It stretches across the Argyle Cut, a pass hewn by convicts over 24 years through sandstone. This installation transforms the rugged, practical environment into an intimate theatrical setting. Gone is the vast expanse of concrete, replaced by glimpses of the Victorian era and geometric patterns in a sequence that migrates nightly from west to east.
Queenslander Mark Dyson has worked in all facets of the lighting industry from theatre and festivals to touring rock’n’roll acts like James Brown and Justin Timberlake. He created lighting for Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday, Queen Elizabeth’s private 80th birthday celebrations and Elton John’s White Tie and Tiara Ball. Dyson is lighting designer for Sydney Dance Company’s new work LandFORMS, and Co‐Director of Brisbane based contemporary dance company, Company Clare Dyson.

Good one, Ann. I have a few shots of this one and I was in two minds of using them. I think the black & white treatment was a good idea.

Nice Ann, I do love black and white these days, and these curves lend themselves well to this treatment.

What a great idea this is. I love the patterns shown in your photos.
