Testing the notion of the audience being more than mere spectators in art, Danish artist Jeppe Hein invites us all to be active participants in his ever-changing outdoor sculpture Appearing Rooms and Spiral Labyrinth1. In Appearing Rooms, architecture, atmosphere and perception merge as jets of water shoot into the air to create 'rooms', which disappear as quickly as they emerge.

Perfect for our hot February days and balmy evenings, everyone can enjoy the beauty and surprise of this ephemeral fountain. Be an observer or walk within the random rise and fall of three-metre walls as one moment they contain you, and the next let you go free.

Hein's exhibition continues inside PICA with Spiral Labyrinth1, a mirrored maze that both entices and disorients.

Jeppe Hein comes to Perth following a major exhibition in Aros Museum, Denmark.
