Interactive Audio Visual Installation

As a featured exhibition, an interactive installation will be created inside the tunnel to connect and visualize the voices of visitors and the sounds of nature. Sound reactive projections will fill the tunnel while the Tele Echo Tubes link the tunnel with the forests of Mt.Fuji, allowing interaction between the two worlds.
