The densely packed, standing ovoids of light are autonomous. When an ovoid is pushed over by people moving through or blown down by the wind, it stands back up while the color of its light changes, and it emits a sound tone specific to that color. The surrounding ovoids respond one by one, continuously changing to the same color and emitting the same tone.
When the wind is not blowing and nearby people are not interacting with the ovoids, their lights begin to blink slowly.

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.
