Floret is a 15-foot-tall inflatable interactive light sculpture designed to interpret the blossoming of a flower. In the basic position, all of the petals are closed, but when viewers step on the pressure pads surrounding the installation, the air pressure changes and the blossom bursts into bloom, illuminating in a variety of colors at night. Floret is coming to Scottsdale after debuting at the Zsolnay Ligth Festival in Pécs, Hungary.
