Honoring the Bonnaroovian Code to play as a team, Amber Lelli, Whitney Proper, and Sadie Monroe are combining strengths from various technical backgrounds to create a skylight installation that radiates positive energy and exemplifies Bonnaroo’s fan atmosphere. Collaboratively, they are creating one giant dancing sound wave made up of translucent vibrant green, fuchsia, and blue dancing figures. The dancers will be suspended in ascending and descending row formations to create a singular sound wave, representing various-types of people dancing together to one vibration. As light shines through the figurines in accordance with the sky, color sensations, and movement the influence of nature becomes prominent in the piece, bringing the flowing, energizing, outdoor Bonnaroo fan atmosphere to life inside the Nashville International Airport.


To create a suspended sculpture that captures the culture of Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. Also to cultivate inspiration in people traveling through BNA in a way that promotes interest in the festival and the music of music city.
