Pixel Forest

1 midieval church, 6 musicians, 61 audio activated LED balloons

Description:

61 wirelessly controlled LED balloons create a floating pixel forest, an ceiling of balloons.  Leah Siegel of Leisure Cruise  controls the LEDs with her voice echoing like a choir of angels throughout the midieval stone church.  Helium balloons reach upwards towards godliness but are tethered by red wine — the blood of christ.The majestic reverence of the church is juxtaposed by the playful childlike balloons.  The strict grid of light showcases dynamic color patterns, gradients, and washes which warm the tall stone architecture.  Persons gathered among the balloons and sat for a concert by the magnificent Quatuor Voce.
