Paint a voyage in light Embark on a journey of light and imagination in this illuminating interactive installation by Patch Theatre. Traverse the sea with a UV torch as your paintbrush, to paint and stencil your own voyage in light. Steer ships that leave glowing paths of light in their wake, then dive below the surface to uncover glowing inflatables in hidden reef worlds. 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. In Australia today, there are over 250 specific Language and Clan Groups, each with their own unique language & cultural practices. Sea of Light brings together magical light and a gentle soundscape to create a unique adventure for the whole family.
