AN ILLUMINATED PLAYGROUND IN THE QUARTIER DES SPECTACLES
For the eighth annual edition of Luminothérapie, Place des Festivals becomes a vast playground with the installation of Impulse - a series of 30 interactive seesaws with light and sound that changes when in motion. The seesaws form units of light and sound that can be activated by the public to create an ever-changing composition. By playing on the seesaws, you create a dynamic light and sound wave giving a pulse of warmth to the winter’s short days and dark nights.
Impulse embodies ideas of serialism, repetition, and variation to produce zones of intensity and calm. It is an ever-changing urban event and an instrument in which the public becomes the musicians and artists.
Impulse a participatory creation by the firms Lateral Office, and CS Design, in collaboration with EGP Group.
