Submergence light instalation

This September sees the UK premiere of Submergence, a immersive (funny that) art instalation near Temple Meads Station in Bristol.

The art peice comprises of a continuously shifting ocean of thousands of differently coloured lights, created through a combination of digital pixels, light lanterns and the physical movement of the visitors themselves.

Created by award-winning digital artists Squidsoup, Submergence was researched and designed in the UK and Norway. It reminds me of the mood and art theropy projects set to help children with learning difficulties, in that I mean it is hugely stimulating and calming if you let yourself forget where you are and submit to not only your visual senses, but also the sound that plays, complimenting the movement and shifting nature of the lights.

It's set to run until the 12th of October and if you find yourself in Bristol at night, go check it out. Prehaps after a few as well to really be in Awe of the pretty lights!
