Composed of 1000 inflated and LED-illuminated PVC globes, The Dome by Hector Serrano was featured at Coachella 2013 and excited festival goers with a visual delight.

According to Deezen, "Each LED is connected to a computerized system, which relays a combination of around 50 different patterns of light and color." There is a crowd-sourced aspect to this installation as the light show can be controlled by a smartphone or tablet with an easily accessible program for download. The silent space provides the festival revelers with a look beyond the festival's music scene incorporating the forward-thinking work of the Spanish designer and his firm 'Borealis.'

The Dome by Hector Serrano was inspired by the Pantheon dome in Rome. It is a modern interpretation that fuses illuminating technology for an immersive experience into the realm of neoteric installation.
