Interactive giant cocoons

Metamorphosis is a large-scale interactive sound, light, and sculpture installation. Activated by touch, each cocoon is pitched to a specific note and has a suite of unique sound effects. Your interaction triggers a colour change in the cocoon, and helps generate a live, harmonic soundscape. 


Inspired by the intricate wonders of the insect world, the cocoons of Metamorphosis are invisibly interconnected. In 5 minute intervals, all cocoons appear to power down, and perform a 20 second synchronised light and sound display. Enter in, reach out and make contact to discover their unique sonic personalities.
