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 lamp posts 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 heart beats recorded from children in the neighbouring Brunswick Nursery School.
