Sea of Light

Paint a voyage in light

Embark on a journey of light and imagination in the illuminating interactive installation Sea of Light. With a UV torch as your paintbrush, paint and stencil your own voyage. Steer ships that leave glowing paths of light in their wake as you sail them across the sea floor. Sea of Light brings together magical light and a gentle soundscape to create a unique adventure for the whole family.

Originally designed for the inaugural Illuminate Adelaide and Art Gallery of South Australia to complement the exhibition, Dušan and Voitre Marek: Surrealists at sea, each iteration of Sea of Light is reimagined to echo the collection of the host museum or gallery.
