On each piece of metal, there is a small autonomous electronic and a solar device which is used as a resonator. It is made of a small solar panel and two tiny motors. When the sun illuminates the translucent crystal, it activates the micro-motors.
Each crystal has the ability to resonate by emitting a different tone.
The level of the sound changes according to the intensity of the sun. The installation is delicate in low cloudy weather and becomes more present by clear blue skies.
The translucent crystal is composed of flexible PVC and tape.
It can resist to bad weather.
The calice is made with soft PVC tubes and nylon ropes.
It is able to resist to the winds, to absorb shocks, to be deformed while then naturally returning to its original shape.
