I’m Laughing at Clouds is an ensemble of nine tactile lighting columns. By touching sensors embedded in the sculpture, the passer-by can create a composition of light and sound. The lampposts are programmed to respond to the human touch recording the frequency of a person’s pulse. This data is represented through the illumination of the columns and by samples of sung heartbeats recorded from children in the neighbouring Brunswick Nursery School.
I’m Laughing at Clouds has been commissioned by Anglia Ruskin University.
