Sydney Opera House lights up

The written word, this ain't, but I couldn't resist the picture, which popped up on the BBC arts and culture page.

The artwork of music producer Brian Eno is lighting up the sails of the Sydney Opera House, as part of a sound and light festival in the city. The swooping, "oyster-shell" roofs have become the canvas for an audio-visual show, "77 Million Paintings."

State-of-the-art software is used to manipulate three hundred of Enos's drawings.

It is supposed to be a meditative and inspiring experience. Hopefully it will inspire a poem or two. Haiku, anyone?
