About this video
Immerse yourself in Seadragon’s lair, an epic 360° underwater adventure set against the backdrop of the Library’s majestic domed La Trobe Reading Room.
Larger-than-life animation, ethereal soundscapes and underwater cinematography collide to create an entrancing marine metropolis in the Library.
This installation was held at the Library as part of White Night Melbourne, 18 February 2017.
