MUCEM

Mer-Veille

Every night, hundreds of sparkling dots come to life to highlight the Mediterranean Sea. Light beacons scattered behind the buildings concrete lace thus projecting its shadow on the docks and the water

 

This projection of kinetic shadows wraps the museum in a light that shudders and is reflected on the surface of the sea.
