Mock up for a larger installation:
400 recycled glass fixtures diffuse the light of 6000 blue and white LEDs along the 5 story tall stairwell. On its own the lights in the sculpture fade back and forth between white and blue light, at a pace that mimics a nice slow relaxing breath – in and out. When someone uses the stairwell, they trigger a motion detector that causes the piece to “breathe” faster. As if the stairwell is exercising along with the climber. After the person has left, the sculpture will start to catch its breath, back to its slow meditative pace.
