“In this installation for COS, I envisage to make a forest of light,” said Fujimoto. “A forest which consists of countless light cones made from spotlights above. These lights pulsate and constantly undergo transience of state and flow. People meander through this forest, as if lured by the charm of the light. Light and people interact with one another, its existence defining the transition of the other.”

This is a sensitive interaction design. The participator can feel they are walking in forest, as they feel like being in the forest. The light which is made by spot light would be trees.

Moreover, It interacts with people by moving.
