Phoenix is excited to bring Ocean of Light – an unforgettable walk through experience which immerses the viewer in colour and light – to this year’s Diwali Lights Switch-On.
A beautiful and evocative outdoor installation, Ocean of Light uses thousands of lights suspended in space to create a huge three dimensional screen where the real and virtual worlds combine.
Ocean of Light is by digital arts collective Squidsoup, an international group of artists, researchers and designers (from the UK, Norway and New Zealand) working with digital and interactive media.
The installation is part of a series of works by Squidsoup using a large array of light in 3D space. This piece will be 7m x 7m in size, containing several thousand individual points of light.
Ocean of Light is taking place at the Diwali Lights Switch On on Cossington Recreation Ground.
The video below shows a previous installation in the Ocean of Light series at Salford Quay.
