The "emanating light" in the "shutter of a derelict building" comes from a giant jellyfish tank, installed by artist duo Walter Hugo and Zoniel.

Every evening, until July 27, the Liverpool warehouse's shutter will "anonymously open," revealing tanks of jellyfish filling the space within, a press release issued by the Gazelli Art House said.

The piece is called "Window Project" and it has a specific aim.

"The psychedelic display is intended to have a discordant presence within the building and to intrigue those in the surrounding area," the release added. "Walter Hugo & Zoniel are interested in the idea that art within the public realm has the potential to inspire; and they have decided to allow natural word of mouth within the community to generate interest in, and ownership of, the project."

"Rather than a marketing campaign, they have silently opened the installation for the residents of the area," it continued.

The unique display of art is supported by the Gazelli Art House, an organization dedicated to "providing a new setting for understanding and deeper appreciation of art."

In fact, part of the display involves live-streaming video from within the jellyfish tank to their art gallery.

"Using the frontage of the gallery as a screen, viewers will be able see through the tank into the streets of Toxteth – creating a virtual corridor between the two cities," the release said.
