Sway is a participatory installation made from 150 white spheres mounted to gently swaying poles that are arranged in two precise fields. Surrounded by mirrors, the ground and ceiling planes are reflected to form an infinite parabolic enclosure. In direct response to human movement and touch, each gently lit sphere reveals a change in hue and intensity.

Visitors are invited to immerse themselves in a setting that can be altered through tactile interaction. Movement through the field creates the effect of rippling light, as if one is wading through still water or tall grass. Sway is a transcendent program for reflection, as well as an opportunity to explore our connection to our physical surroundings.

*The project was built in collaboration with Snarkitecture and Brooklyn Research.
