Cubes of Perpetual Light will feature in two key events in Edinburgh in August. The cubes are part of the Dandelion creative program, inspiring people to ‘Sow, Grow and Share.’ Each is one meter square and contains hundreds of tiny plant plugs growing under LED light, combining design craft, traditional horticultural expertise, and technological innovation.
The unique cubes are set to travel across Edinburgh by bike on 2 August, giving people the chance to see these miniature vertical farms and art installations.
They will travel from Lauriston Community Farm along Cramond promenade on specially designed bikes, finishing at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. At this point, they will arrange into a square formation; their sound and lights will be activated, and anyone standing inside the square will be able to experience a quadraphonic sound show - surround sound using four speakers simultaneously.
Each cube will integrate with multiple speaker systems, showcasing specially commissioned music from a collection of Scottish and international artists.
