Burning Seed Australia 2015 - Interactive Light Installation (Part 4 - Final)

Photos from the completed 'White Forest' light installation for Burning Seed Australia 2015.

The 'White Forest' itself was made from white strips hung from a large netting approx. 8m x 8m. Inside the White Forest were 5 light stations: Earth, Fire, Air (Bear), Water, and Heart. These 5 base elements were woven together by the story of the Purple Turtle who had travelled across the world looking for the basic foundations of life. Each light station had a story of the Purple Turtle discovering that light station's particular element, and also had an interactive light that represented the element. The lights from Earth, Fire, Air and Water were all connected into the central Heart.

The videos below demonstrate each of the 5 light stations:
