Nizza park in Frankfurt was host to 25,000 viewers of this musson+retallick installation addressing issues of immigration and tribes. Two colonies at different developmental stages exist within sight of each other but their relationship is intentionally unclear. The viewer is invited to move amongst the lit elements leading to discussions about the nature of the colony. The forms in one colony radiate colour changing light from their patterned surface while the second colony, consisting of suspended cocoons, respond with slow breathing light sequences.
