Nature Concert Hall 2016 is designed as an art installation made from 10 000 paper bats. Levitating cloud with gradient density over the musicians serves also as a screen for video and light projections.
To achieve maximum lightness and levitation effect art installation is suspended in 3 paired electricity columns far away each from another.
The volume of the cloud is referring to flocking bird and bat created dynamic geometries that can be found in nature. Black & white video and light projections, specially composed music are continuing the interpretation of dark world of the bat.
Nature Concert Hall is multimedia nature-educational annual event that incorporates science, dramaturgy, music and art. Its aim is to bring attention to surrounding nature, to tell about daily unnoticed and invite to be careful.
