Nine programmable, interactive sculptures swivel and rotate atop 25-foot-tall stilts. Coloured fabric attached to automated fans swells and deflates, all while changing in colour and intensity in response to live music. The result is an ever-evolving mechanized ballet of colour and light. The windsocks also function like a clock, with special choreography every hour that further enhances the musical experience.
