Get lost in this stunning Scottsdale light show that interacts with the viewer's movements through the exhibit.

Ocean of Light is a relatively new interactive artwork on display at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, or SMoCa (pronounced Smoke-Uh).

More than 8,000 LED lights have been strung from the ceiling and have been synced to music and movement. However, it's not a piece that is stagnant and meant to simply be observed. 

People can, and are encouraged, to move between the strands and watch the show from different perspectives. You'll notice that as you move, the lights move with you.

You can experience it now with our 360-degree video below:

Ocean of Light is a data-visualization piece from Squidsoup, a UK-based collective. It'll be on display through September 24, 2017.

Museum admission is $10 for adults and $7 for students. Children 15 and younger are free. It is open Tuesday - Sunday. Admission is free on Thursday and after 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
