Interactive Seesaws on the Streets of Montreal Emit Light and Musical Harmonies

Currently on view at the Place Des Festivals in Montreal, Impulse is a new public art installation comprised of 30 completely illuminated seesaws and a series of video-projections on nearby building facades. When the seesaws are used they “activated” and begin to emit tones resulting in various musical harmonies. The project is part of a collaboration between CS Design and Toronto-based Lateral Office.

“Once in motion, the built-in lights and speakers produce a harmonious sequence of sounds and lights, resulting in a constantly evolving ephemeral composition,” say organizers of the event. This past summer the project was selected as a winner of the 6th annual Luminothérapie event.

Impulse will be on display through January 31, 2016, and you can see a bit more over on Arch Daily. (via Dezeen)
