Urban Visuals and Organelle Design were selected among a talented pool of artists and architects as winners of the Necklace Project Competition for the City of Surrey. As a public art piece, the project is conceived as an interactive, light-based installation along the elevated Skytrain line. The piece will be activated by the confluence of transportation modes by a series of vibration, acoustic and electrostatic sensors. The result is an organic, aurora borealis-like display of colors that celebrates technology and alternative means of transport.
Completed in September 2011, relying only on the presence of solar energy to turn run.
The lights are activated by sounds and vibration of the elevated train and nearby vehicles passing by, pedestrians and cyclists add colour patterns as they move underneath the installation.
