Lynette Wallworth's mindblowing video aquarium is coming to Carriageworks – for just four days

This immersive video aquarium by Australian artist Lynette Wallworth features breathtaking high-res footage of plant and animal life from the very deepest parts of the oceans, and music by Max Richter, Gurrumul and Anohni, among others.

Commissioned for the 2012 London Olympics, the piece is designed 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," says Wallworth.

The artwork is designed to be viewed in a dome, and will be staged at Carriageworks within a portable fulldome.

Coral: Rekindling Venus screens on the half hour from noon each day from Thursday to Sunday inclusive, with final screenings at 4.30pm on weekdays and 5.30pm on the weekend.

Audience capacity for each screening is 30 people. Admission is free but bookings are essential.
