Sea of Light

Paint a voyage in light

Embark on a journey of light and imagination in the illuminating interactive installation by Patch Theatre. With a UV torch as your paintbrush, paint and stencil your own voyage and steer ships that leave glowing paths of light in their wake.

As you explore Sea of Light, artworks by Contemporary Aboriginal visual artist Elizabeth Close are painted in light across the sea floor. These paintings speak to the connection between land and sea, the earth and waterways and are informed by the diversity of the Australian landscape. They also reflect the deep relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia have with Country.

Sea of Light brings together magical light and a gentle soundscape to create a unique adventure for the whole family.
