Paths is a public space musical instrument and light installation. The playful experience celebrates the journey of cyclist traversing urban environment. The movement of cyclists through monitored spaces will trigger synchronized and beautiful audio and visual representation.
Paths will transform the cyclists daily commute into a playful performance accessible to the wider public. The experience is shared with cyclists enjoying playful interaction and pedestrians benefiting from resulting sound and light spectacle. Playful and soothing sounds will be created in response to the environment and will draw the attention of the general public from afar. Lights will be used to highlight the flow and dynamic nature of movement on the cycle paths, and will focus the attention of the general public.
Paths will utilize a combination of motion sensors, speakers and lights strategically positioned along cycling paths. A group of sensors will be placed along paths to pick up motion over set distances. Grouped sections will be matched with audio and light segments that when combined will create a beautiful symphony. Paths will be installed in a limited number of locations of interest such as crossings with other cycling paths, interesting architectural/environmental locations and areas of high traffic and pedestrian congestion.
