It is installed to give people of all ages, a multi-sensory and digital art experience like no other.
The event starts, with participants coloring leaves of their own on a paper, then the magic opens when their leaves subsequently come to life on a 270-degree wall projection. Then, as they move, along, participants find they will bring life to forest floors through the leaves as autumn dance moves fill the floor with gushing colors of the season.
