Wave-Field, Variation F

Thursday 31st January 2019 - Sunday 17th March 2019

Illuminated musical seesaws…if that doesn’t bring out your inner child then nothing will

This hugely popular travelling installation, Wave-Field, Variation F, is created by Lateral Office and CS Design with soundscape by Mitchell Akiyama, and it’s coming to Coal Drops Yard.

With Wave-Field, Variation F, you are the catalyst that sets the artwork in motion. The installation invites you to play…in public…in the street. You’ll have to pair up with others – friends, family, strangers – to create patterns and harmonies. The result? An ever-changing musical event where light and sound build and intensify.

The playful nature of Wave-Field, Variation F makes art accessible to all. Passengers are not merely witnessing the art: they are active participants, becoming integral to its interpretation. At rest, the seesaws thrum with sound, inviting passers-by to participate. Set in motion, they burst into sound which becomes richer as more visitors partner up, encouraging encounters and the development of relationships, new and old.
