My hometown of Pittsburgh has seen a lot of first…
and now for the second time in less than a year, this city has been the first in the nation to feature a new an innovative work of art.
The Market Square area of Downtown Pittsburgh has been the setting for a temporary installment of an interactive exhibit designed by two men from the United Kingdom, The creators are KMA visual media artists Kit Monkman and Tom Wexler.
Here’s how it works. Every night at dusk through 10 p.m. on weekdays and 12 a.m. on weekends, a projection unit with thermal heat detection comes on, plays music and produces a stunning light show based on the movement of the people in Market Square at the time. The piece will be in Pittsburgh until March 16.
Check out a few video samples below:
Things start off slowly at dusk.
After a few minutes, the show moves into full swing.
