Easy Breezy is an installation consisting of a canopy of white umbrellas, each one outlined in electroluminescent wire, that hung suspended in the air in the Michael Bany Way alley during BLINK Cincinnati 2017. Every other line of umbrellas was attached to motion sensors. When these motion sensors were activated by people walking down the alley, the umbrellas would swing back and forth, appearing to dance.
