The ocean is broken. Legions of jellyfish are filling the seas, clogging harbours, lining beaches–are they trying to tell us something?
In “Jellish” a bloom of giant illuminated jellyfish transforms night time streets or fields of a festival into a strange and magical in-between world.
These giant jellyfish puppets are illuminated internally from gently changing LED and UV lights which are controlled by each jellyfish technician. On the back of each technician is a sound system with strange and evocative seascape sounds. The jellyfish are 1.5 metres wide and are up to 5 metres up in the air.
