FREE Light Show in Dubai Features “Underwater” Illusion

We’ve already shared about the Museum of Illusions, which features exhibits that boggle the mind and sight. Today, we would like to talk about a new attraction that offers an “underwater” experience… without the water! Get ready for WATERLICHT, an outdoor dream landscape.

WATERLICHT is an art installation created by Daan Roosegaarde, a Dutch artist and innovator. Brought to us by Dubai Holding, it will be featured at the Jaddaf Waterfront Sculpture Park this month — marking the first time that this unique show is presented in the Middle East and Asia!

Artistic Dream Landscape Featured in Dubai this Month

WATERLICHT marks the opening of the Jameel Arts Centre at Jaddaf Waterfront Sculpture Park, where guests can see exhibits and installations by more than 40 artists. The event also coincides with Dubai Design Week (November 12-17), the largest creative festival in the region.

The WATERLICHT landscape highlights the “power and poetry” of water (hence the “underwater” illusion). The focus on water makes it a fitting attraction for Dubai, which aspires to be one the world’s most sustainable cities, as reflected by Expo 2020 Dubai’s theme: sustainability.

For more information about this unique art installation, please visit the Dubai Design Week official website.

An “underwater” experience without the water? Sounds really interesting! This show also reminds us of the Rain Room in Sharjah — another really cool place! What’s more, residents and tourists in Dubai shouldn’t miss a trip to the recently reopened Dubai Miracle Garden as well!
