The Curiosity Cloud created by Mischer’Traxler consists of 264 glass bulbs suspended from the ceiling, each of them containing a hand-made insect. When approached, the installation lights-up and insects start moving inside of the bulbs creating a spellbinding dance.

“That atmosphere was important,” stated Misher. “The first intention was really that you should have a quite magical moment when you enter the space. Something a bit surreal.”
