‘Forest‘ is a giant interactive installation composed with more than 150 musical ‘trees’ made of rods and lasers designed by Marshmallow Laser Feast. The audience can freely explore the space, physically tapping, shaking, plucking, and vibrating the trees to trigger sounds and lasers. Due to the natural springiness of the material, interacting with the trees causes them to swing and oscillate, creating vibrating patterns of light and sound. Each tree is tuned to a specific tone, creating harmonious sounds spatialized and played through a powerful surround sound setup.
The installation is designed to bring out in adults those feelings of curiousity and wonderment which are so alive and evident in children. So let us be child again!
