This is a space where you can be three dimensionally immersed by various objects of light that move as though they’re defying gravity. The items on the ground will continue to stand as if they are defying gravity, while the objects floating freely in mid-air will stick to the ceiling as if also defying the laws of physics.

These objects of light are each independent and shine brightly and go dim as if they are slowly breathing. The cactus-like object in the middle of the space and the objects floating through the air can be moved around freely.

When the objects of light are pushed or pushed over by visitors, their color will change and a tone specific to that color will ring out. Then all the nearby objects will react and change into the same color and make the same tone. The objects will continue to react to each other gradually in a chain. If a color of light comes from the distance, that means that a person is there. This will make people feel more aware of the presence of others sharing the same space.
