Cave Gardens set to illuminate

Mount Gambier’s Cave Gardens precinct will be illuminated tomorrow evening as part of a two week winter light festival.

Illuminate Adelaide and the State Government, through the South Australian Tourism Commission, are partnering with innovative regional councils and award-winning artists to shine a light on South Australia.

Building on its success in 2021, Digital Garden once again re-imagines the cultural centre of Mount Gambier with captivating installations, projections and interactive lighting.

Transforming Cave Garden/Thugi with a series of experiences from renowned local and international artists, Digital Garden will light up winter in the Blue Lake city from August 5-21 between 6pm and 10pm.

A highlight of the project will be an interactive installation by Jen Lewin Studio titled The Pool.

Merging the movements of individuals to create an overlapping and ever-changing collage of light, The Pool is a giant field of concentric circles that swirl with colour when activated by touch.

Inspired by Australian tidal rock pools, The Pool uses cutting edge mesh-network technology and custom code to bring this vivid and ever-changing composition to life.

Other artists include Submergence by Squidsoup and Neon Winter and I Am Here by Carla O’Brien.

Illuminate Adelaide co-founders and creative directors Rachael Azzopardi and Lee Cumberlidge said they were looking forward to lighting up Mount Gambier.

“Illuminate Adelaide is delighted to be returning to Mount Gambier with Digital Garden in Cave Garden / Thugi,” they said.

“We have curated a new program of events, installations and projections that are both interactive and inspiring.

“This event, in the heart of Mount Gambier explores art, light and technology and will be a whole lot of fun for the whole family.

“We urge everyone to throw on a coat and a beanie and explore Digital Garden and all it has to offer in the South East.”
