The installation Framed by Mandylights sees 20 geometric arches lined with brilliant color changing, pixel mapped LED fittings to create a unique tunnel of light effect with a distinctly modern edge, according to the release. The Nautilus Forest features an illuminated forest of spiraling trees, with more than 40,000 individually controlled RGB pixels. Each of the 24 trees stands up to 15 feet tall; together they merge into a meandering forest.
