Aerial designed and produced a kinetic installation for the atrium of the major new Al-Ostoura shopping centre in Kuwait City. Mechanised moving mannequins, with no external power source, travel continually up and down the four storey space. Each mannequin is individual, has moving limbs, and is programmed to pause in various positions en-route. The mannequins can be dressed each season to reflect changing fashions.
