Fireflies is a project that will employ mechanical and lighting elements in order to imitate the motion and lighting of fireflies. We are designing this as a modular project that we will continue to scale up and install in other venues building complexity and interactivity as we master the process. Our hope is that through technological means we can invoke the sense of simple awe that accompanies nature’s patterns inspiring us to find our place within it.

Does the piece incorporate flame effects, moveable pieces, and/or is it climbable?
