Designed by Phu Hoang Office, Exhale Pavilion is located in Miami, United States. An artistic network of reflective and phosphorescent light ropes creates a canopy that moves in the gentle breezes wafting in off the sea. Totalling seven miles, the ‘floating ropes’ are activated by wind-speed sensors. When a specific wind speed is detected, the adjacent ultraviolet lights are momentarily activated, ‘charging’ a field of glowing phosphorescent ropes. Likewise, lower level lighting becomes ‘charged’ when an individual blows on it, activating neighbouring ropes.
Underneath this canopy of illumination is a hammock clearing, where visitors to the contemporary art fair can relax, socialise and enjoy the glowing display.
