Intended to encourage a moment of reflection in an energetic atmosphere, Nebulous was installed in a central position amongst the public at Maitreya Festival. Composed of an intricately patterned, pulsing globe mounted on a latticework tower, the glittering sphere expands with intersecting and meshing patterns into a much larger ellipsoid, before gently contracting again in an effortless cycle.
