Automating startup and shutdown
Our first major work, Always Coming, Always Going (or simply Always), automatically started every evening at 6pm and shut down without fail at 11pm, saving us many trips to the site over the three weeks that Vivid 2017 ran.

Sydney Harbour lights up from 6pm each evening during Vivid (Allison Lee, Destination NSW / Wikimedia Commons / CC-BY-SA-4.
