5 giant solar flowers absorb the sun’s energy, then reflecting it at night via LED lighting.
Created on behalf of Seattle City Light’s Green Up program, which supports the development of renewable energy systems.
“In the playful context of Seattle Center’s festival grounds, Sonic Bloom is a permanent interactive art installation at the foot of Seattle’s Space Needle and a defining entry sculpture to the Pacific Science Center.
5 giant solar flowers absorb the sun’s energy and express it at night with patterned LED lighting and in the daytime with a chorus of interactive harmonic tones triggered by people’s movement around each flower. The striped stalks are also massive barcodes that allow inquisitive types to decode the supersized puzzle.”
