The interactive urban installation The Wave consists of forty triangular, interactive, both glowing and sounding gates. It stands 3,6 metres tall and 80 metres long. The gates responds to movement sonically and visually. The audiences therefore co-create the artistic experience and convey unique light and sound events that constantly change the perception of the installation during its entire life span. We like to regard The Wave as a beacon of light in the city’s ongoing darkness during the winter months.
The Wave was first exhibited in Februar 2017, where the inhabitants of Copenhagen of all ages could meet and interact with the installation, admiring it both close-up and from afar. The installation was easily seen from the Opera House, Papirøen, the inner harbour bridge, displaying a visually evident, central contribution to the harbour.
In the future The Wave will probably travel the world to be part of events where its spectacular size and engaging design will light up cities all over the world.
