Hylozoic Grove consists of a cluster of Breathing Columns expanded by hovering cloud-like filaments that gather overhead. Within each Breathing Column, kinetic fronds gently stir the surrounding air through their rising and falling actions. External lighting creates dramatic shadow play surrounding the illuminated work.
The work is on exhibited at the Vitra Design Museum’s Hello, Robot exhibition from February 11 – May 14, 2017. The work will continue to tour, open to the public at MAK Vienna in May 2017 and at Design Museum Gent in October 2017.
