Thinkwell Studio Montréal created an aerial installation inspired by the movement and colors of the northern lights for the lobby of MGM Grand’s Aurora bar. The project was created and conceived in collaboration with Super Potato Design

The impressive 30 feet long crystalline structure comes alive through the broadcasting of a rich palette of 16 million hues within the suspended structure. The more than 600 stalactites of this transparent sculpture are frosted in various places, diffusing the light that comes from the video to LED conversion randomly, creating the feeling of the Aurora northern lights.

This project was completed prior to Thinkwell’s acquisition of Réalisations-Montréal in 2019.  Réalisations-Montréal is now Thinkwell Studio Montréal.
