The installation named ‘Glowing Trees’, was designed by architecture firm spatial practice, and consists of seven out-of-scale kinetic ‘trees’, that move up and down within the space to create a magical experience.

Each ‘tree’ is composed of 2,174 strips of fabric, which were hand sewn, pleated, and assembled on the form of each tree, with the colors becoming darker towards the top of the tree.
