Galway 2020 presents


Studio Roosegaarde  
DATE Cancelled
LOCATION Connemara / Galway County

A dream landscape will transform Connemara, highlighting the power and poetry of water, and raising awareness about rising water levels around the world.

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?’

Following guidance issued by the Government in relation to measures to contain Covid-19 it is with regret that Galway 2020 has made the decision to cancel this event. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
