We provide interactive play experiences. The ZOA is a large pulsating organism from the microcosm inspired by a baby jellyfish, the hydrozoa polyp. A mysterious white light emanates from the nucleus of this alien lifeform. [from chromaforms website]

The Zoa was created by many pieces of plastic, carefully cut and heat sealed together.

Because of the many refracting colors, it was difficult to see a smaller, similar shape inside it.

Kids loved to spin the Zoa. It was so massive that it could only be spun slowly.

A walkway cover protected electric cables from shoes. Two signs were painted on that protector. The first credited "The Zoa @ Chromaforms," and the second warned "Do Not Climb."

The Zoa art-piece from Chromaforms was located smack in the center of the fair. It was set up in the middle of the intersection of Howard Street and 2nd Street.
