What is it?

In “Alight,” video of a candle flame is shown with stochastically arranged white and orange LEDs, concealed under a stained shop rag.

A centrally placed microphone detects when a visitor attempts to blow out the candle; a gentle puff causes the flame to waver.

If the flame is blown out, it is reignited about 30 seconds later—just long enough to make you wonder if you broke something.
