BELUGA invites participants to transform their experience of human interaction into visible light and movement. The Belugas are winged blimps floating in space, which, through the use of embedded sensors, are aware of their surroundings, people, and conversations. As people talk, the Belugas react, gently illuminate, and then flap toward the source of the conversation. As people gently touch the Belugas, they respond and change colors.
