Voyage is a simple, but appealing project created by partners in the design firm Aether & Hemera of Newcastle at London’s trendy Canary Wharf. Artists Gloria Ronchi and claudio Benghi launched a vivid, tiny fleet of 300 polypropylene boats illuminated by colorful LED lights.
The creators hope that their vision will “provoke memories, explore aesthetics, and elicit feelings of connective human experience.”

Love the photos. What a sight that must be.
Gorgeous! Yet another installation I would love to see. Happy New Year!
