Deep Sea explores the lesser known part of the ocean where there is little food and oxygen, high pressure and no sunlight. This arts space commissioned by The Artground takes families into the deep underwater to imagine what it could be like. Similar to the deep sea, this arts space revolves around a whale carcass which is crucial for creating long-lasting ecosystems.This immersive experience is dimly lit and further enhanced with hints of blues. Coupled with specially composed atmospheric tunes, families will be transported to the imaginary deep waters. Designed for children’s active exploration and to create a unique experience, everyone is encouraged to wander and wonder.
