    26 Lydia Terrace, Wallaroo SA 5556, Australia

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.

Wallaroo Silo Light Show brings science and art together by uncovering the fascinating story of Copper and its significance to the Copper Coast, and revealing a possible future for the region.

Copper is the third most consumed industrial metal in the world with many uses and has been pivotal to industrialisation in South Australia. From humans to shellfish copper is essential to life on Earth. We explore why this remarkable metal has been, and continues to be, such an important part of life in the region, and across the globe.

Looking into the future, we meet Avril, born in the turning of the worlds, when seas rose and retreated, changing the face of everything. Avril is a creature of no world and all worlds. Avril’s letter to us charts the key moments of her own life, reminding us that the small things are actually very big things. Dive into and out of rockpools that are portals to other worlds and possibilities.

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 SA projection arts pioneers illuminart and Copper Coast Council with the support of Arts SA and National Science Week.
