moonGarden is a shadow theater pop-up installation taking place in inflatable bubbles. Created in 2012, it has been shown in many cities like Baltimore, Washington DC, Medellin, Merida, Moscou, Mexico, Bruxelles, Lyon, and Jérusalem. Seen by more than a million people, it is undoubtedly an invitation to dream.
For the 10th anniversary of Discovery Green Park in Houston, the Lucion team asked us to create the universe inside their biggest bubble (30’), which had round windows so that visitors could observe the world inside. We made 3 landscapes, inspired by elements in the park, placed on rotating platforms and two mobiles. All the silhouettes have been illustrated, then laser cut and finally coated in colourful paper. They come alive when the lights go on at night and the shapes are projected on the sides of the bubbles.
