Feel the earth move beneath your feet in this free, large-scale immersive installation. Groundswell is a new work by Matthias Schack-Arnott, an award-winning percussion 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 stand on a raised platform that responds as you shift your weight. Thousands of illuminated balls below create a visual and sonic response to individual motions, ensuring each moment differs from the last.

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 Australian Council for the Arts, the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, City of Melbourne, the Besen Family Foundation and the Playking Foundation.

In partnership with Brighton Festival and supported by The Pebble Trust.

This event is free and unticketed, visit during opening hours.
