This is the precursor to the Nest installation, and took place in a rough, cave-like gallery space in Lacoste, France, in March 2007. It features 100 glowing lights, but this time they were all made of hollowed out white eggs, hidden in the cracks and crevices of the cave like glowing jewels. Each has an embedded RFID tag, and when it's placed in the central "nest" sculpture (made of wax), it changes the mix of the ambient sound in the room.
All electronics were hidden from view, behind the rocks. People were forced to contend with their fear of breaking the eggs, and were rewarded with the pleasure of changing the sound in the room.http://www.carladiana.com/fragile
