Cocoon is an engaging, illuminated sculpture that you can walk through and feel yourself transformed by the experience. Our primary goal is to express a sense of rebirth and transformation. Set along a bike/pedestrian path in an open landscape at the edge of town, Cocoon offers a sense of enclosure and release as you pass through it. At night, colored light transforms the inside of the cocoon into a shadow theater where people can see themselves projected onto the surface of the sculpture and its surroundings.
