Voyage' is an art installation by Aether & Hemera, consisting of a flotilla of 300 paper boats sailing along Canary Wharf's Middle Dock. Each boat encasing coloured dynamic LED lights and together they form attractive patterns that enlivening the night at Canary Wharf. This project has been commissioned by Canary Wharf Group to ‘launch’ their 2013 ‘Sculpture at Work’ programme.

Media architect Claudio Benghi and light artist Gloria Ronchi joined together in 2006 to form Aether & Hemera, an interdisciplinary collaboration that seeks “to research the aesthetic challenges of light and its power to trigger emotions and response, creating a sense of identity or setting a mood.
Passers-by can interact with the flotilla until February 15 between dusk and 2am each day to change colours and patterns by connecting their mobile phone to the Voyage Wi-Fi network.
Aether & Hemera's artistic vision is to "provoke memories, explore aesthetic interactions, and to elicit feelings of connective human experiences in a required-to-participate audience."


Colourful 'paper boats’ on the water invites everyone to make a transition from reality to imagination, reliving childhood memories and embracing our freedom; blurring the lines between the real and hyper-real, ‘Voyage’ invites the thoughts of the visitors to cross the borders of their imagination.
