BOO an interactive zen garden by studio roosegaarde

‘boo’ by studio roosegaard6-meter high pillars of light with electronics, sounds peakers, software, black rubber, lenses and LEDs

 

 

after experimenting with LED light in previous projects ‘dune’ and ‘crystal’, studio roosegaarde (daan roosegaarde) decided to add some eastern influences to his work. with ‘boo’ he creates a mystical garden which connects the students of the hotelschool in amsterdam with the eastern continent. the 6-meter high pillars create an illusive landscape of cricket sounds and green light. the more visitors interact withthe installation, the more active the pillars become both amongst each other as well as the people in the space. when no visitors are around, the ‘boo’ ghost awakes and wonders through the ‘zen garden’.
