Sky Forest is an interactive hanging light installation captivating people and fostering connections through touch and sound.


Sky Forest features a meticulous composition of capacitive materials which create a connection between a light source and the user. The piece features lengths of LED light strips and soft fabrics which foster the interaction of touch and play. Three artists working collaboratively conceived the hanging installation which people of any age and height can interact with. By interacting with capacitive sensors the user learns the behavior of the piece which bears some semblance to clouds in the natural world.
