A Nocturnal Harmony
A Nocturnal Harmony is a temporary lighting installation that reveals and amplifies a nightly harmony between a laundry vent and a traffic light. Each night at the George Close Building in Cambridge, steam from the laundry room flows over the sidewalk, subtly becoming lit up by a nearby traffic light. The meeting is only noticeable from a specific vantage point, and then only to those who create the space to notice.
Funded by the FLOW grant program from Cambridge Arts, the proposed project will amplify this moment of harmonics through a steam-activated, color-changing LED that is tuned to the traffic light. As the traffic light changes, the LED will light up the steam cloud with the same colors, highlighting this ephemeral moment for all who pass by.
