99 interactive LED Balloons, 900 windblown guests
One hundred wirelessly controlled LED balloons suspended in a wind vortex swirling around and above visitors reaching heights of 25′. A steel briefcase sitting atop an oak podium in the center of the vortex invited visitors to enter and control the color and speed of LED balloons. The visual landscape transforms as the public shifts the balloon’s color, twinkling faster/slower, pulsing on/off, as wind swirls everywhere.
