Lotus Dome

Posted by Winifred on October 22nd, 2012  •  No Comments »

The Lotus Dome is made out of hundreds of aluminum folded flowers which unfold in response to human behavior.  Positioned in the shadowy interior of the Sainte Marie Madeleine Church, the flower leaves remain motionless, that is up until a visitor approaches. Initially, they open up one after the other, letting their light glow from inside.

As they walk around it, the light of the invisible, almost living creature, breathing in and out, obediently follows them around, casting intricate reflections around the dark church’s walls.

Opening up, letting one’s light glow…perhaps the Dome ought teach us about that.
