The construction of the Opera House provided a rich field for photography. Beneath the auditorium for the concert hall I discovered a most unusual play of light. Rectangular spaces, planned for future airconditioning ducting in the formed concrete, were left open the sun projected dancing patterns of light - like the visual equivalent of modern music - on the walls and floor of the cavernous space.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
