What would it feel like if our city was engulfed by water?

This art installation was displayed at King’s Cross in London during the 3rd Lumiere London or Winter Lights festival. Granary Square was virtually flooded with waves of etheneral blue light to get people thinking about global warming and rising sea levels as well as how we can use water in positive ways, such as generating electricity. The work was also accompanied by a piece of music to listen to on a phone.

Specifications:

2016-2018. LEDs, software, lenses, humidity and a site specific location design.
