The work Tivoli is a mixed media work including HD video projection and the inflation of meteorological balloons, suspended between black voile screens. The black and white neuro-tree-like video work plays across the balloons which come to life as the audience moves around the work, triggering the sensors. These inflate the balloons and the LED lights inside simultaneously.  All this occurs in a variable manner dependent on which sensors have been triggered.


The inflation of the balloons shifts the double-layered voile screen and life is given to the work through shifting Moiré patterns that play across the layers. The work is a spin-off of the Winter Tree project and comes from ideas of interconnectedness in neurons, plant matter and growth.


A sense of breathing in, filling the lungs, occurs when the fans come on and air is directed into the balloons, a tentative 'magic' is in play.
