The design for this sphere was prompted by the location of its first outing—a former PowerPlay store in a Leicester's Highcross shopping centre. Being publically accessible, the sphere needed to be visually both striking and appealing to encourage members of the public to investigate it. The structure was covered in coloured cellophane, and plastic strip curtains in red and yellow were meticulously cut to represent flames (facade design by Ian Bilson). Roaring bonfires, crackling embers and fireworks contributed to the sound materials played over the multiple speakers.
