Thousands of luminous, biodegradable lights catch the wind and dance in the night sky.

Inspired by fireflies, birds and the galaxy of stars, Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde designed a flock of sparks made from biodegradable materials. Once released, the sparks form ever-shifting clouds of light that behave like atmospheric bioluminescence, caught in a cool night breeze.

For four evenings during RISING, the light show will be released above Fed Square, free to be enjoyed by anyone who takes the time to look up.
