Tyvek Origami Jellyfish with LED Lighting at Vancouver Aquarium Installation

Tyvek origami jellyfish
Origami jellyfish made from Tyvek and lit by LED lights are featured in an interactive installation at the Vancouver Aquarium called "Jelly Swarm". The Vancouver Aquarium show "Luminescence - A Celebration of Aquatic Light" runs from Nov 24, 2011 to Jan 2, 2012. "Jelly Swarm" is part of that show, described on the Vancouver Museum website as:
"a unique light installation created by Tangible Intervention in collaboration with origami artist, Joseph Wu. Over a hundred jellies with LED lights will fill the entire ceiling of a gallery. Control the lighting yourself at the touch of a button and create beautiful patterns of light throughout the amazing swarm hanging above you. Then take part in glow in the dark arts and crafts activities or make your very own origami jelly decoration to take home with you."
