Through the movement of the visitors within the installation the LEDs are lightening up and the static, chaotic structure transforms into a vibrant, three-dimensional swarm one can visually but also acoustically experience.

“The chaotic random structure holds against the formally structured digital and organised manmade world we live in,” said Neon Golden.

The lights use motion-sensing technology, controlled by Arduino and Raspberry Pi hardware, to replicate the motion of fireflies. The LEDs change position horizontally in response to the movements of nearby visitors.

A notable project which was designed to create the impression of a “virtual flood”.
