Choreographies in the Sky won  fourth place in the 2010 Land Art Generator Initiative Design Competition. The project was designed by Carlos Campos Yamila Zynda Aiub Architects for a site in Dubai, and centers around flying robots called Wings that store solar energy and use it to illuminate the ground below during the nighttime.
