North Van public art piece uses lights to make you feel like you're underwater

Your commute to and from the SeaBus just got a little more visually stimulating.

Sea Change, a new public art piece that uses a series of interactive LEDs and mirrored panels that refract light patterns to mimic being immersed in a body of water, was officially activated on Wednesday evening, North Vancouver Recreation and Culture has announced.

The piece, created by local artist Jill Anholt, is designed to provide a “visually, dynamic, engaging and playful experience to the tunnel adjacent to the Lonsdale Quay bus exchanged,” according to a release from NVRC.

The artwork was commissioned by the Polygon Promenade in partnership with the City of North Vancouver.

Sea Change aims to celebrate North Vancouver’s connection to the waterfront, the release states.

When the tunnel is unoccupied, the artwork will cast a gentle rippling light effect, but when a passerby enters the tunnel along the Spirit Trail, it will trigger a wave of blue and green light which will cascade along the wall in front of them, the release states.
