Interactive light project coming to Chattanooga

Green|spaces and Glass House Collective are bringing an interactive light project called The Pool to the Highland Park, East Chattanooga and East Lake neighborhoods in April.

“We are very excited to be a part of the Chattanooga community and especially these neighborhoods,” says sculpture artist Jen Lewin, creator of the project. “In the ten years we have been traveling the world with this installation, we’ve never had the opportunity to get deep into the communities and really interact with neighborhoods.”

Made up of 40,000 LEDs on 106 computer-powered three-foot discs arranged in concentric circles, the piece activates when someone steps on the pads, setting in motion colored light effects.

The Pool will be on display from 7:30-10:30 p.m. in the following neighborhoods on the following nights:

April 21-23: East Chattanooga, at the Harriet Tubman site

April 25-26: Highland Park Commons

April 28-30: East Lake Park

Other sponsors and supporters include Public Art Chattanooga, EPB, ArtsBuild, Allied Arts, Glass Farm Block Leaders, Good Neighbor Network and the Highland Park and East Lake Neighborhood Associations.
