Steel ring, steel cable, PMMA tubes, LED lighting technology, control system, 12x4m

A dozen 12m long PMMA tubes hang from a beam ring in a forest clearing. The steel ring hangs in the treetops, fixed with steel cables. Inside the satin plastic pipes are on compl. Length LED boards with red LED’s integrated and let the light sculpture illuminate.

Wind moves the trees and thus also the installation, because it finds its support in the treetops.

A wind direction indicator consistently shows the wind direction – the corresponding PMMA tube shines brighter.
