Martin Place

Vivid Sydney at Martin Place runs from 6pm - 11pm.

Deep Forest by culinary and art duo Motti+Smith at Martin Place is where an oasis has been created by the fusion of artists and chefs for you to enjoy! Motti+Smith have assembled a talented young team to realise the idea. With the production expertise of Paper Moose and Stagekings, they have fashioned an oasis that brings both forest and feasting place to the urban jungle of Sydney’s CBD.

The popular UrbanTree installation returns this year with UrbanTree 2.0. UrbanTree 2.0 takes viewers deep within an exotic forest eco-system, where rivers flow, plant-life grows and each night a giant glowing frog succeeds in catching a hiding caterpillar.

Lux Populi by Stagekings soars 10 metres above the forest floor, creating a ‘tree of light’ that shelters a tasty surprise. The renowned Argentinian restaurant Porteño demonstrates mastery of the fire pit from a genuine Argentine asador or barbecue. Some of NSW’s best fire chefs will join Porteño, creating exciting culinary collaborations with NSW wines and other beverages.

Atmos, Paper Moose’s magical display of ghost-like scrims and ribbons, is positioned above the dining area, recreating the majesty of our ‘Southern Lights’, the Aurora Australis.

re/FRACTION fills the Lloyd Rees fountain with brilliantly glittering, refracted light, where artists of the Buchan Group have taken a very familiar landmark and reinvented it in a most unexpected way!
