Taking Flight

Get lost in the sculptural light and reflections of Taking Flight!



Taking Flight is a semi-immersive light art sculpture. The participant plays with the handles that control the light fixture attached; to create sculptural light reflections that mimic bird silhouettes. The process is guided by interactive ambient sound that turns on when a participant is present and off when not, making the experience a meditative one. Taking Flight will draw you in with it’s beauty, calm your nerves by letting you focus on a simple task and empty your mind completely by the end of it. You’ll never want to stop playing!
