Studio DRIFT’s Shy Synchrony is a poetic, upside-down landscape of moving flower-shaped kinetic lanterns that perpetually bloom in mid-air, inviting visitors to contemplate natural rhythms and their soothing effect on our state of being. “In a time that is defined by human isolation and a disconnect from nature, we aimed to address the need for a new alignment with our environment and a return to the strength of communal interaction.” Explain at Studio DRIFT.

“Shy Synchrony explores our innate response, individually and collectively, to natural movements, creating a deepened sense of awareness for the singular qualities of all environments we traverse.”

Superblue also presents Forest of Space, an elliptical pavilion by architect Sou Fujimoto conceived in response to DRIFT’s installation, which recreates a dynamic forest that intervenes in the space and with the movement of visitors. As audiences walk through this forest of long, vertical wooden pieces and experience the lights and organic movement, the pavilion instills a reconnection with Nature. It highlights the interaction between viewers’ bodies and their surroundings.

“Forest of Space encourages visitors to experiment with the spatial and social elements of the structure and engage in conversations about the past, present and future of architecture, urban settlements and the natural environment.” Explains Sou Fujimoto.
