The dome, acting as an enormous seed in the square, will house a mesmerizing and meditative video experience drawing upon botanical phenomena and responsive to the presence of visitors.

This work is best experienced at dusk or evening. It is interactive/responsive to movement, gesture, and sound so feel free to perform!

Externally, the seed blossoms into a massive floral sculpture through a web-based augmented reality layer encouraging and incorporating interaction with visitors and their mobile devices.

This augmented reality app is best experienced by daylight. Bring your smart phone!
