The Oasis is a set of mechanical lotus flowers that interact with light in order to challenge the presumption of a lifeless, barren desert. The flowers are designed to be static artworks, buried into the crests of sand dunes. As the sun descends below the horizon, the flowers come to life, blooming as they cast a soft light onto the sand below and transforming the space around them.
