Be Illuminated with the Digital Garden in Mount Gambier.

Presented by Illuminate Adelaide in partnership with the South Australian Tourism Commission, the Digital Garden has come to illuminate the city of Mount Gambier at Cave Garden/Thugi. Come and experience the magical lights with all new captivating installations, projections, and interactive lighting from renowned artists from South Australia and overseas.

Inspired by Australian tidal rock pools, The Pool is a giant field of circles that activate by touch, creating swirling streams of light. This installation uses cutting edge mesh-network technology to bring this vivid pool to life.

Also featured at the Digital Gardens will be the installations Submergence by Squidsoup and Neon Winter & I Am Here by Carla O’Brien.

Submergence uses thousands of individual suspended lights to submerge the viewer in a sea of vivid and twinkling lights.

Neon Winter will transport you to a winter wonderland where you can give a neon snowman a hug, take a selfie with an adorable baby penguin, or ‘wear’ a pair of oversized neon oven mittens!
