Between Piers 4/5 & 2/3, Hickson Rd, Walsh Bay – 22 May to 08 June, 6pm ‘til midnight
Strum The Laser Harp to perform a melody, which in turn creates an accompanying animation of natural and suburban beauty. As you pluck more notes, the scenes continue to adapt and transform to the music. This musical work was developed as a tool to spread knowledge about the nature of light, and to incite curiosity around the waves of light, sound, water and matter that surround us daily.
