Responding to the pressing risk of rising sea levels brought on by global warming, Dutch artist and innovator Daan Roosegaarde will transform an area deep in the Connemara landscape into a virtual underwater world.
Waterlicht will envelop audience members in a virtual flood as they move through the installation, accompanied by a specially created podcast. The piece underlines the power of water while asking, ‘How we can face the future and adapt? How do we avoid the flood? Can we build floating cities and how much power can be generated by the movement of water?’
