Australian artist, Lynette Wallworth, is getting ready to release an installation filmed underwater in digital planetariums, which takes us on a journey into a mysterious realm of fluorescent coral reefs, sea creatures and rare marine life.

During her TEDxSydney talk, she wowed the crowd with a trailer of the film, which premiered at 25 planetariums around the world to coincide with the Venus transit of the sun on June 5. Wallworth’s intent is to leave the audience with a sense of wonder for the complexity of the coral community and a deep-felt longing to see it survive. The images are set to a sound track by Max Richter and new songs from Aboriginal singer Gurrumul and Antony and the Johnsons.
