Image. Brightly coloured goo splashes, squelches, squirts, oozes and glugs across the sandstone wall of Cadman’s Cottage. Through their luminous shadows projected on the wall, up to four visitors are able to play in the goo, throw it, splash it and swim in it – their avatars mimicking their movements.Goo! - Vivid Light 2019

Remember Slime? That gloopy, squishy, stretchy, fluorescent green goo that had kids crazed in the 70s and 80s. It’s back. And it has oozed out of those tiny green trash cans to fill Cadman's Cottage. 

Goo! invites kids and kids-at-heart to play in a virtual fountain of multi-coloured, sticky slime. Join up to three others in the performance area where a series of live, high resolution scans are recorded and implemented by a unique piece of crafted software, allowing visitors to drive the real time media with their movements. In other words, jump in. You direct the fun.

Manipulate human-size globs of floating goop. Splash in viscous pools of syrupy, clinging colour. Fling gelatinous blobs at one another. All without ever making a mess.

This custom built, real time fluid simulation cleverly transforms the heritage harbourside building into a slime-filled playground that everyone will love!
