Our world is in a constant state of transformation. Most of the time, our view of the world will change parallel to this transformation. Are we aware of the influence we have on our environment? The installation allows you to experience and admire this influence by joining forces with others. Your acts have meaning!

We want to make visitors of GLOW think about the amount of control we have on the changing façade of the world. The visitors are able to experience individual and collective influence on the world around them by collectively replacing weight. So by shifting the platform, the interactive projections makes the whole façade shift accordingly.
