Experience artistic and visionary alternative futures in a science themed world first. Five iconic Australian landmarks transform each sunset in August as illuminart's vibrant regional projections blaze to life simultaneously in a connected trail of spectacular Stories in Light. Collaborating with talented regional artists and animators, illuminart’s brand new animated stories combine local knowledge, ideas and creativity with epic science-fiction that plays in a different way on each site surrounded by other programmed content. Watch out for the special transmission from the future in the first half hour.

Karoonda Silo Art’s Light Show brings science and art together by revealing the story of the Karoonda Meteorite as told through the eyes of a local Mallee Fowl, and revealing a possible future for the region. The Light in the Sky explores the global sensation of the 1930 Karoonda Meteorite, its geological significance and how it is an important part of the Karoonda story.

A Ray of Hope peers thousands of years into the future when humans live in giant domes due to ecological devastation, tended to by giant mallee-bots that keep the temperature stable. Come on a journey where the future meets the past and the present, and where hope is ever present. Believe that the future can be whatever we decide to make it and take action towards.

Grab some local tucker, bring a picnic chair or blanket, enjoy the sunset and watch the building light up. Visit all five permanent projection sites and see how they connect to the events trail on a road trip of interesting local activities way outside the city limits.

Proudly brought to you by South Australian projection arts pioneers illuminart and District Council of Karoonda East Murray with the support of Arts SA and National Science Week.
