MESS + Soma Lumia
Jump in a boat and plunge into an imagined, psychedelic dream world. MESS and Soma Lumia have reimagined the Dark Ride: local landmark Penny Royal’s waterborne adventure through the darkest, kookiest recesses of convict Tasmania—transformed by artists with laser beams, hypnotic video art, lights galore and a specially commissioned, out-of-this-world synth-soundtrack. It’s inspired by stories of the afterlife in Greek mythology, where the dead would drink from the river Lethe—which flowed through the cave of Hypnos, the god of sleep—to forget their past lives and thus find paradise.
