Sydney Opera House / Living Mural by Universal Everything

ART & DESIGN, MUSIC & FILM — 22/08/2015 — by Quirin V.

A global animation project by Universal Everything, collaborating with over 20 different animation studios worldwide to create a living mural on one of the world’s most iconic buildings. Embracing emerging technologies, Universal Everything’s process always starts from drawing. The hand drawn techniques seen in this film are akin to the early pioneers of animation Len Lye, Norman McLaren and Walt Disney.
Using these timeless techniques mean this film could have been existed in 1920, albeit with a 21st century twist – bringing our influences of global pop culture, modernist graphics and physics simulations into a playful exploration of this iconic building.
