The Story

SKYMAGIC designed a drone light artwork that responded to Hegra, the breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage site in AlUla, as part of AlUla Wellness Festival. The Silence of Light is an art installation that explores the origins, movement and beauty of light, and how this natural wonder is routed in Hegra.

Set above the monolithic Tomb of Lihyan Son of Kuza – Hegra’s largest tomb which rises to 72 feet high – the performance was designed to interact with the majestic landscape and celebrate its iconic landmarks and deep meaning. Through studying inscriptions from the tombs of Hegra, an understanding of the site’s relationship to the light and sun directly informed the concept of the piece.
