SOFTlab produced a hanging installation for the entrance to School Nite, an exhibition of site-specific installations, performances, and discussions. The installation was curated by Nuit Blanche New York as part of Flash:Light 2011 along with the Festival of Ideas for the New City sponsored by the New Museum.

The installation was in the entrance at corner of Prince and Mott in NYC. The form was generated through a gravity driven process and then prepped for production.

The surface contained more than 1400 battery-powered LEDs. The piece was designed to light up the entrance for the night-time event.

The main formal expression of the installation was the hanging pieces that flickered and blew in the wind, with the intention of slowing down traffic through experience and effect rather than typical barriers.

Visitors are meant to co-mingle and interact with the piece, like a clown fish and the sea anemone.
