World of Winter | Crank Zappa Jellyfish

Sunday, January 23 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 pm

A large outdoor installation brought to you in partnership with Amigo & Amigo based in Australia.
Crank Zappa Jellyfish is an interactive sculpture created from plastic waste. Lights animate and respond to touch sensors at the ends of the tentacles. The sculpture is also accompanied by music and voice combining to bring the character of Crank Zappa to life, as well as educate the public on plastic waste in an accessible and engaging way.
Crank Zappa is completely constructed from single-use plastic items including 1,000 plastic bags, straws and 800 plastic bottles that were salvaged from Scotts Creek and 1,200 meters of recycled twine that was weaved together by 40 volunteers. As visitors gather under Crank, he electrifies and animates in response to human touch.
This public art installation is one of many during the 2022 World of Winter festival.
