Submarine Art in France

By Linda Tancs

When thinking of a site for a digital art installation, a submarine base may not necessarily come to mind. But thanks to French museum operator Culturespaces, an immersive experience was created in four submarine bays on a former base in Bordeaux dating to World War II. Billed as the largest digital art center in the world, Les Bassins de Lumière puts the facility’s massive surface area to good use, projecting contemporary art onto the walls and into the water of the four enormous basins. Visits are conducted on gangways above the water and along the quays of the basins. The facility is easily accessible via a downtown tram and a short shuttle ride.
