Child’s play that has created one of the most amazing atriums at sea

This is how guests will be greeted when they step into the atrium of the new Carnival Horizon.

A massive LED “Dreamscape” atrium sculpture will be a blaze of colour with custom-designed artwork created by patients of St Jude Children’s Research Hospital when the 133,500-ton ship debuts, in Europe, in spring 2018.

The eye-catching, three-deck high funnel-shaped centerpiece will offer 33 different artistic creations.

The artwork was unveiled at Carnival’s Day of Play, an annual event held for children and their families at St Jude in Memphis, Tennessee. St Jude, which costs $2.4m a day to run, is one of Carnival’s largest charitable partners

Designed by Techno Media, Dreamscape is a uniquely designed, 24ft funnel-shaped centerpiece that debuted on Carnival Vista and is comprised of more than 2,000 flexible LED tiles that have been customised for the shipboard environment.

Each day, technicians on board program the rotating artwork based on the time of day, port or occasion.

For Carnival Horizon, the young artists from St Jude were tasked with creating fun pieces with bright bold colours showcasing their personalities.

The original creations complement the more than 100 images that continually rotate throughout the day and evening bringing the ship to life and providing guests of all ages with a unique and memorable vacation backdrop.
