Fort the 2013 season, Ballistic Architecture Machine has created giant flower lanterns that hover in the atrium of Hong Kong's premier shopping Center.

The blooming light fixtures rotate to create an eye-catching synchronized display providing visitors with a reason to look up at the heavens. Each piece stands out amidst the chromatic retail settings with its bright hues and geometric display. In addition, the lanterns create and optical illusion of color change as they rotate.

According to Archinect, "this mysterious color transformation in the form of the flower evokes many natural associations." Indeed the change of seasons and the fleeting nature of cyclical change come to mind as one is hypnotized by the installation. In addition, Ballistic Architecture Machine has included dishes of real flowers to further mystify with scent.
