NOVA originates from the homonymous natural phenomenon - when a dormant star meets another star due to their gravitational pulls, the dormant star experiences a brief re-ignition, releasing a moment of intense brightness.
Initially appearing to be a dormant mass, the installation momentarily lights up to display a show of lights upon interaction with passers-by. As individuals make their way through, the colourful, bright lights intensify, exhibiting responsiveness to the proximity of the visitors. With the lights infinitely reflecting off of the parallel-running mirrors, the illusion of an expansive space within the seemingly narrow passageway is created.
Once visitors have exited from the installation, the lights will begin to die off, once again hiding within the dormant mass until becoming re-ignited by another encounter throughout the night.
