Wave-field Variation Q
A playground of light-up musical seesaws pitched up in Bristol’s iconic Queen Square for the first edition of Bristol Light Festival.
The interactive art exhibition is made up of a series of seesaws, which are dimly lit and emit a low sound when still. When passers-by climb on and play, they burst into sound and light, becoming more joyful as more people join in.
The playful installation made art accessible and engaging for all, and encouraged encounters between strangers, friends and family, developing relationships, new and old.
Wave-Field Variation Q was dreamed up by Canadian designers from Lateral Office and CS Design, with a soundscape by Toronto composer Mitchell Akiyama, and has been touring the UK this winter.
