A spectacular light show in Sydney, Australia

The Daily Mail reports that for the next few weeks, the sail-like roof of the Sydney Opera House will be illuminated by a spectacular light show.

The iconic building - famed throughout the world for its graceful white 'sails' - has been transformed into a canvas for a kaleidoscopic array of images.

Called 77 Million Paintings, the installation is the work of artist and music producer Brian Eno and features 300 of his drawings.

He told the BBC he wanted people to 'surrender to another kind of world,' as they watched the transformations.

Beautiful! There are many more pictures at the link. Recommended viewing.

Here's a brief interview with Brian Eno, with some shots of his display on the Opera House by night.
