What a Bat-astrophe!

The Nature Concert Hall is made up of 10,000 paper bats comprising a unified component. The main inspiration for the whole installation might be the unpredictable shapes of nature. From the far distance, this piece of art implies an image of a flock of bats converging on the main stage in the middle. Indeed, the original design intent is to generate dynamic geometries, imitating natural features.

In considering the flock of bats, it is noticeable that its density changes from the edge toward the center, implying an image of flying and levitation; using thin wire and a natural-looking wooden column helps to camouflage most of the artificial elements, attracting more attention to the flock. This flock is intended to serve as a screen for video and light projections. Obviously, the abnormal pattern of this special screen would create an interesting lighting effect for the shows.
