Light a Wish
Make a wish before you blow the fluff from a dandelion into the air – everyone knows this game. OGE Design Group’s Light a Wish visualises the moment the seeds disperse in the air, taking your wish with them into the world.
This immersive, welcoming tunnel of warm light is equally spectacular when viewed from the inside or out. Inspired by arched church windows and appearing from a distance to be a single solid shape, the Winter Cathedral is illuminated by tens of thousands of LED light globes.
The team behind the Contemporary Tree is Julian Luna, Matt Fries, and Boston Kassidy with help from their friends: Will Hill and Shaun Lide, engineers/advisors; Mark Flores, Eric DePan, Ruthie Ocean, and Chris Brodeur, fabrication and installation; and Justin Hughes, jack-of-all-trades.
