BOREALIS by Dan Acher

Experience the magic of the Northern Lights right here in Perth.

BOREALIS takes the Northern Lights phenomenon to cities the world over, bringing people together and transforming public space.

After travelling to Switzerland, Japan and the UK, BOREALIS is here to light up the Perth night skies. Dan Acher's creation is as much a work of art as it is a technological performance.

High power laser beams travel through particle clouds to create the illusion. Variations in movement, colour, and density, together with changing weather conditions, give infinite variations.

A unique aurora is created each time. 

Borealis is proudly supported by Forrest Chase.
