"OPEN AIR" Philadelphia
From now (it began in September) until October 14, 2012, internationally acclaimed new media artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s public art project “Open Air” will illuminate the Benjamin Franklin Parkway with enormous three-dimensional light formations in the night sky.
Every night from 8-11 p.m., participants can use their voices to activate 24 robotic searchlights placed along a half-mile section of the Parkway, all via a custom iPhone app developed for “Open Air.”
The app analyzes the users’ voices for frequency, intonation and volume, and then converts them into unique searchlight formations in the sky.
The lights react, both in brightness and position, creating a canopy of light over the city.
