An NYCxDesign award winning installation by Atlier Cho Thompson at the Flatiron Plaza in NYC
Trigger light shows and sound with motion
The architectural installation, a series of interlocking arches that sat on the busy plaza from November 2021 - January 2022 as the winner of the Flatiron Design Challenge. As visitors passed under the multi-colored arches, 6 Devices tracked their motion. If two people were under the same arch each Device would trigger a light pattern and song. If people were under all six arches, one of five original compositions would play with a corresponding choreographed light show. The piece was a statement on connection after months of pandemic-forced isolation, and the Device brought the work to life.
