Wind, corralled and choreographed in a robotic ballet.
Nine programmable, interactive sculptures swivel and rotate atop 25-foot-tall stilts. Big, bright windsocks mounted to robotic fans swell and deflate, all while changing in colour and intensity in response to live music. The result is an ever-evolving mechanized ballet of colour and light.
Also a clock, special choreography every hour further enhances the immersive musical experience.
