Snarkitecture’s new creation – Sway – is a massive piece of art that only needs a touch to light up into blue. Sway is a collection of 168 white round orbs. The immersive installation is for a gallery located at Intersect. At first, you may not feel like touching the art.

On top of that, they also change color based on how visitors move around the gallery.
