Sidewalk Harp by Jen Lewin (Minneapolis, Minnesota)

Sidewalk Harp is a permanent, outdoor interactive instrument in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the headquarters of the Be The Match Registry.

The Sidewalk Harp is played by passing your body through the 36 sensors capped with LEDs along the bottom of the 40-foot long stainless steel form. Much like plucking the string of a harp, passing through the sensors triggers custom circuitry and sensors to produce musical notes and LED colors. As the community gathers and plays together, they create a symphony of color that washes over the urban landscape. This act of engagement with others is just as much part of the art as the sculpture is itself.
