Sonic Runway Installation Debuts in Chengdu
Authors： Go Chengdu
Sonic Runway made its world debut in Chengdu on May 26.
Sonic Runway, an art installation created by American artists Robert Jensen and Warren Trezevant, made its world debut in Hongxing Road on May 26, bringing Chengdu a visual feast and a fabulous art show.
At the opening ceremony of the art show, Robert Jensen said he experienced one basic physical phenomenon during a music festival in the Nevada Desert in 2002: sound wave and light wave travel at a different speed. As a consequence, when standing far away from a performers, the audience see the performers dancing off-beat, because the image of them arrive at the viewer's eyes before the sound waves.
"This is how the idea was born to create an art project and installation that would synchronize both light and sound, making sound 'visible' to the viewer," declared Robert.
According to Warren, arches of colored lights of the installation form a long corridor and all driven by a sound system. As sound waves race across, they trigger patterns of light that ripple down the corridor. Wherever you stand, light and sound are in a sync, making sound visible.
The 180-meter long corridor will encourage people to walk its length and experience the speed of sound, visualized in light. Chengdu IFS (International Finance Square) will cooperate with different brands and third-parties to present a series of themed activities.
