An immersive interactive light installation controlled by the viewer’s breath
The Sanskrit word “prana” refers to a cosmic life force that originates in the sun and enters the body through the breath. In the act of breathing, we form a connection between ourselves and the universe.
PRANA is a celebration of that connection and a meditation on the unseen energies of our bodies. The experience explores the relationship between breath and light, giving visitors the ability to visualize their energy through its impact on a sphere of 13,221 individual LEDs.
In order to keep PRANA constantly fresh, we also created a code editor that allows other artists and developers to create custom animations that can later be incorporated into the piece.
The installation was completely designed and built in-house over the course of a year filled with 3D models, late nights, wiring parties and creative breakthroughs. It’s a manifestation of our continued interest in creating memorable and emotional experiences powered by technology.
