Forest of Autonomous Resonating Life - Eucalyptus

The densely packed ovoids of light, standing in the Eucalyptus park, are autonomous. When an ovoid is pushed over by people moving through or blown down by the wind, it rises back up as the color of its light changes, and it emits a tone specific to that color. The surrounding ovoids respond one after another, resonating and emitting the same tone and light color.

The ovoids begin to flicker slowly when the wind is quiet and people do not push them.


If light approaches from the opposite side, it signifies the presence of people there, making people more aware of the existence of others in the same space.
