New year, new amazing posts! Here is our finding, an amazing installation by Aether & Hemera called ‘Voyage’.
‘Voyage’ installation consists of three hundred floating ‘paper boats’, encasing coloured dynamic LED lights that come alive at night in the Middle Dock of Canary Wharf.
The etymon of the word ‘voyage’ comes from Latin ’viāticum’, which means ’provision for travelling’; the inspiration of this artwork is to allow people to travel and sail with absolute freedom to all the places we care to imagine. Paper boats bring us in voyages through childhood memories, wishes and imaginings. Paper boats’ on the water invite everyone to make a transition from reality to imagination, reliving childhood memories and embracing our freedom. Creating an unexpected and unusual addition to the landscape, ‘Voyage’ inspires the viewers to think creatively about the spaces around them; the dynamic coloured light scenarios of the artwork invite the viewer to make a smooth transition between reality and daydream.
