Though they are rarely seen, there are about 18 species of fireflies in Palo Alto, California. Firefly Garden, a passive installation, brings fireflies and trees to life in the newly designed garden of Sam and Dale Griffin. By mimicking the ethereal “glow” of fireflies and the natural movement of the trees (especially with natural elements such as wind), Firefly Garden highlights natural phenomena that may be often overlooked or unseen. Additionally, by projecting on the concrete structure in the garden, the installation acts as a transparent window to the trees behind the opaque structure—creating an abstract and artistic interpretation of the garden’s natural characteristics.
