The world is getting faster. Cars are fast, food is fast, even our thoughts are fast. And because of this, our attention spans are pretty short. Ironically, Universal Everything manages to grasp our attention with their massive 15 minute projection of hand drawn animation onto the Sydney Opera House.
The grand projection displays work from 22 of the world’s top creatives, breathing incredible life into the inanimate sails of the iconic building.
Watch the entire show and you’ll be amazed by two things – one being how many stories can be visually told in 15 minutes, and two, how every story somehow connects with the next. It’s incredible how the projections manage to mimic the human mind; quick thoughts bursting and transforming beautifully.
Matt Pyke of the creative team stated, “Our analogue animation process reveals a human soul in the drawings – something we hope the audience can relate to.” This sense of humanity is achieved very clearly as you are left feeling as though you have peered into someone else’s stream of consciousness, or perhaps maybe your own. Either way, what Universal Everything’s projection animation does is remind us of our own conscious thoughts, imagination, and all the beauty there is in our own minds.
