81 wirelessly controlled LED balloons create a floating pixel forest, an outdoor canopy of balloons. The installation is voice activated live by Leah Siegel of Leisure Cruise -- her beautiful voice echoing like a choir of angels. Dressed in white, she walks through the forest painting the balloons with her voice. Wind patterns reveal as the balloons shift simultaneously like a school of fish, a flock of birds, or cattails blowing in the wind. As the wind settles the balloons rise again to reveal a strict grid of light, a pixelated video screen which showcases dynamic color patterns, gradients, and washes. Visitors are escorted into the forest and lay among the stars like orbs of light.
