The second installation is an adaptive jellyfish. The jellyfish changes color based on the seasonal temperature changes. The colors are changed to a hue offset that is based on current temperature against the average temperature of Palo Alto. If the temperature is warmer than average, the color approaches a more red and yellow phase. If the temperature is colder than average, the color approaches a bluer and more purple phase. Since Palo Alto has a relatively temperate climate, it is important to highlight slight temperature variations. Since the projection is a jellyfish, the team thought it was appropriate to use the pond in the back as the projection surface. The pond was considered by the team many times as it provides a unique, dark surface that can be manipulated not just for projection surfaces.
