"...Senior designer Sydney Bouaniche burns the midnight oil by putting the finishing touches to the lighting design.The Electric Canvas team of five designers have spend over 1000 hours in 2D and 3D modeling programs to create the final animations that will be projected onto Customs House".
"...The patternings of images and their tonal texturing are bracingly pleasurable, with Sydney Bouaniche’s swathes of light subtly transforming the space and in perfect balance with the projections."
The Electric Canvas
Sydney has been a lighting and projection designer working across the music, dance, theatre, film, and event disciplines for almost 25 years. He began his career in France and it was while touring with the Philippe Genty Company that he came to Australia. Sydney has been a guest lecturer at NIDA and Bathurst University. As part of our art department Sydney's technical knowledge and understanding of projection adds a layer of depth to his design approach and he brings a rich skills base to the team.

"...On the screen above a survelliance camera caught Champion at the door of her apartment—trying to gain access to herself. Brigid Kitchen’s film and Sydney Bouaniche’s lighting gave About Face increasing cohesion. In scale and focus they struck the perfect balance between live and virtual bodies."

“...immaculate sylishness, in a genuinely innovative collaboration of austere strangeness.”
"...Although last year’s creation was a triumph of innovation, this year’s surpassed it for its unified cohesiveness. These performances provide the benchmark for artistic collaboration and deserve wide exposure.”
