Sat 6 - Sun 28 May 2023

Feel the earth move beneath your feet in this free, large-scale immersive installation.

Groundswell a new work by Matthias Schack-Arnott, an award-winning percussive artist from Melbourne who fuses sound and movement into evocative, atmospheric experiences.

How lightly do we tread upon the world? This kinetic, interactive artwork responds to every step we take. You are invited to move - individually or collaboratively - across a raised platform that sets in motion thousands of illuminated balls to create oceanic waves of sound and light. As we move across the surface of the work, we are reminded how our actions are inextricably linked.

Groundswell sees Matthias Schack-Arnott again collaborating with Keith Tucker from Megafun and Tilman Robinson following their award winning Everywhen.

Commissioned by Melbourne Fringe, Sydney Festival and the Naomi Milgrom Foundation. Supported by the Australia Council for the Arts, the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, City of Melbourne, the Besen Family Foundation and the Playking Foundation.
