Forgoing a formalised festival bar this year, the Adelaide Festival instead brought Blinc — an outdoor multimedia art gallery set on and around the Torrens Lake and Elder Park.

Along with various laser projections and interactive sound toys, a highlight was Junction by HC Gilje, a set of pulsing lights set on the underside of the King William St bridge. But most interesting were the projections on the Festival Theatre and the rear of Parliament House by a variety of artists including Hartung and Trenz, Laszlo Zsolt Bordos, and Ryoichi Kurokawa.
