A huge audio and projection show created by artists Anna Heinrich and Leon Palmer will take over an aquarium in the UK city of Hull this December.

Floe, a three-night show that will be projected on The Deep aquarium, marks the end of Hull’s reign as UK City of Culture for 2017.

It will feature images of icebergs in a show inspired by marine life and geological landscapes and is one of a number of commissions for Hull during its time as UK City of Culture.

Floe starts on December 8, 2017 and is the brainchild of artists who have already transformed other UK landmarks using projection and lighting. 

The Deep, opened in 2002 and was designed by architect Sir Terry Farrell.  Heinrich and Palmer say they were inspired in their work by his original drawings for the building.

Hull started its year as UK City of Culture with a number of projections on the city’s historic buildings. Floe will run alongside other installations including one using VR technology.
