About project

The interactive kinetic installation Blooming of Light symbolizes the nature around us in the form of bizarre techno-flowers. We see nature that we must take care of, fight for incessantly and protect. Each visitor can become a part of the installation and thus also of the perceived sustainability. Just rotate the imaginary flowers and transform the dry leaves of grass into a living garden full of sensations, light and blending shades of colours. Blooming of Light represents a harmonic symbiosis between humans and nature. It reacts to present day ignorance of humans towards nature and their uncontrollable efforts to pump out all its resources without any feelings of guilt. People could, in fact, help nature significantly. Chaos and harmony, silence and noise, darkness and light represent opposites demonstrating the various stages of life. The beauty of a blooming meadow is a metaphor of life. The form it will take depends only on us.
