Fairgrounds St. Pete Project
Searchlight Sanctuary, creative coding, stage and street light, stage and graphic elements
Created in collaboration with Fairgrounds St. Pete, Searchlight Sanctuary is a narrative, graphic diorama that invites guests to discover hidden elements and clues from within Fairgrounds St. Pete’s universe while challenging their perception. Visitors will be confronted with a monochromatic, lush landscape full of textures and objects; under these conditions it can be hard to discern subtle clues. As they respond to prompts, visitors will discover that things take on a new meaning under a different light, leaving them with a sense of wonder and discovery for what might be hiding in plain sight.
