Solar powered light art!

Seattle artist dan corson made this super funky and whimsical interactive solar powered artwork! Part of the Seattle City’s lights green up movement, this sculpture consists of 5 gigantic sunflower solar powered structures that illuminated in LED lighting at night. But wait! It gets even cooler (or should we say hotter?)

“sensors located in each flower are triggered by people’s movement, as the 40’ high by 20’ wide super-sized flowers set off a chorus of interactive harmonic tones. each flower has its own distinctive set of notes, simulating a singing chorus. engaging the public it is possible to compose and conduct music together, or just by walking through to randomly set off a harmonic sequence. the interactive choral sound component works both day and night providing a dynamic and ever-changing sonic landscape.”

We love interactive art!
