SKY draws inspiration from the billowing white clouds and spans of sapphire-clear atmosphere that make up the Earth's sky. SKY consists of 32 elements, set out in a 20 metre-wide grid. Each element has a air-jet that, when activated, inflates a 5m-tall vertical fabric plume which ascends and surges with pulsations of pressure and swirling motion. Half of the fabric plumes are sky-blue, and half are cloud-white. SKY has eight microwave sensors that detect passing  pedestrians and a computer that composes choreographic responses to human movement. The initial activation of SKY was the opening event for the Perth Winter Arts Festival in 2017 and for the Curiocity Brisbane festival in 2019.
