A “forest” along the Esplanade lights up as people move along its path. A longer camera exposure renders passersby invisible but for faint blurs of light while surrounding trees glow with reflected color and the twilight sky beams blue with brilliance.
The Lucy Light Forest is an interactive light and sound experience created to celebrate movement and the women who love it. The forest is a bit larger than a football field and consists of more than 10,000 solar powered LED lights. Amber hues of light and complementary tones of sound are activated by movement through the forest along the DCR’s Charles River Esplanade.
The Lucy Light Forest shines along Boston’s Esplanade October 3rd to 13th 2013 thanks to lucy Activewear and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.
