On a grid of nearly-invisible wires, 1,089 LED-lit orbs become a massive kinetic chandelier at 10 meters (32.8 feet) high. Each orb changes its color and position according to its programming to compose fluid, angular, or dispersed patterns and shapes that can complement the performance onstage… “jellyfish or constellations, the aurora borealis, a breath of wind or the splash of sea waves.”
This ORBIS FLY kinetic light system was installed at the historic Leningrad Center in Saint Petersburg, Russia’s second largest city. The light installation was a collaborative effort by Atlantic Star, Ascreen, and Таймлайн (Timeline).
