On The Bridge

Interactive Light installation (public art). Orginally commissioned by Curated Places and Visit Reykjavik.

On the Bridge is part of the Enchantment series, an interactive light installation that transforms bridges into stunning artwork designed by Tine Bech Studio. As visitors walk across the bridge, clouds of colours will appear creating an electric, vibrant atmosphere. The light and interactive design is unique to the site, consisting of a series of interactive section, which together will become a large visual installation that is tailored to its location. Each bridge looks different, using different colours and scaled to different sizes in response to the opportunities and limitations presented by the site.

Enchantment is designed to create a high impact, immediate transformation. It encourages social engagement through play and physical participation. As visitors walk across the bridge they will activate short, cloud-like bursts of colour. The smoke cloud lingers, and creates an immersive experience which inspire and intrigue audiences. When there is no pedestrian traffic on the bridge, it will revert to a single colour lighting the structure of the bridge, until a visitor walks across and the bridge comes to life. Each section is independent and visitors can play independently or collaborate to cover the bridge in colour clouds. The work is transient, reacting to nature and win. Audiences will see high floating coloured haze or low hanging, mysterious mist.

On the Bridge was created for Reykjavik City Hall 70 meters long pedestrian bridge. Visitors activate pink colour bombs as they passed seven magic spots on the bridge. If they ran or worked together the whole bridge turned pink at the same time.
