The most amazing work is without a doubt the Laser Dragon created by Oracle-Liquid. This work introduced a world-first: a water-screen mounted on a 13m robotic arm. Floating high above fifty-six fountains, arranged in snake-like coils, this moving water-screen assumes many forms, from ferocious dragons to the characters of commedia dell’arte.
The Laser-Dragon Water-Theatre includes 4 water screens, 40 vertical water jets of 20 meters, 16 movig water jets of 25 meters, 20 torchlights of 15 meters and 10 powerful lasers.
