Fancy/Lightweight creates a refreshing spatial breeze through fan-like sculptural shapes which frame and segment the space, offering the audience an altered experience of a familiar place. The numerous LED wires are broadly spread on one side and come together on the other end, forming three-dimensional fan structures. This festival commission makes use of low energy lighting technology for creative cultural expression.
