202215julAll Day31Adelaide, Australia: The Pool and Chandelier Harp at Illuminate AdelaideThe Pool and Chandelier Harp

Exhibition Details

Illuminate Adelaide’s free, city-wide centrepiece returns with a new series of immersive installations, artworks and large-scale activations set to turn Adelaide’s most iconic streetscapes into a night-time playground of colour and sound.

The Pool and Chandelier Harp will be joining the roster of boundary-pushing local and international artists to reimagine the laneways, street-fronts and open spaces through the three key North, East and West precincts.

Bringing together highly mathematical principles of music theory, Jen Lewin’s Chandelier Harp invites visitors to create literal music through the movements of their body. Visit Chandelier Harp at Queens Theatre, Playhouse Ln & Gilles Arcade. By dancing beneath the harp’s unique series of laser sensors, participants can work collaboratively to play this interactive instrument fit with retro synthesizers to generate truly harmonious melodies.

Merging the movements of individuals to create an overlapping and everchanging collage of light, The Pool is a giant field of concentric circles that swirl with colour when activated by touch. Inspired by Australian tidal rock pools, The Pool uses cutting edge mesh-network technology and custom code to bring this vivid and ever-changing composition to life. Visit The Pool on the North Terrace of the South Australian Museum.

Free for all ages and running nightly from 6pm to 11pm.
