As part of New York City’s Summer Streets event series, artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer has transformed New York City’s Park Avenue Tunnel into “Voice Tunnel,” a sound and light installation that is activated by the voices of participants. The installation consists of 300 lights and 180 loudspeakers which are placed throughout the 1,400-foot-long tunnel. Participants are invited to speak into an intercom placed at the tunnel’s center—the participant’s voice is then added to a sound loop that plays through the loudspeakers and is synced to the lights. “Voice Tunnel” is open during the remaining Summer Streets events, August 10 and 17, 2013.
