Lyon was historically known as an important area for the production and weaving of silk. Silk has special light qualities due to its prism-like structure, it refracts incoming light at different angles, which creates a shimmering appearence. As a material silk has been a source of inspiration for this installation, and also the creation of silk, which begins with a transformation in nature.
It has been an important feature that due to this location, the installation could be experienced from many hights and from many directions. So that when festival guests approach from either Rue Lemot, or Montée Saint-Sébastien, they already begin to experience the volumes of light and as they get closer, they start to perceive the changes. When they enter the park, they discover that the changes are caused by other festival guests interacting directly with the installation. So this way the new visitors are encouraged to take part of the interaction.
