An oversized mirror ball hangs from a three-legged stand, as if a giant hand had intervened, enlarged the existing lighting poles, moved them and hung a disco ball on them. Half of the sphere is equipped with solar cells, produces energy, supplies itself with electricity and can rotate. The installation is equipped with a light and sound system that can be interactively controlled by everyone using a smartphone, and it emits excess electricity via USB sockets.
