This is a lighting installation that generates unstable, accidental fluctuations. Illuminated globes float in space without any support from strings or wires, controlled only by the air vented from blowers. The globes of light drift around subject only to this imperfect control, constantly rotating and vibrating like living organisms, charmingly precarious and fragile. The apparatus that keeps each globe afloat consists of LED lighting, an air blower, and a stepping motor whose rotation can be precisely controlled. The LEDs illuminate the floating globe, the blower controls its height, and the stepping motor determines the angle of air flow.
