using LED technology ‘the pixels crossing 2012′ by french designer miguel chevalier is a sensory artwork completed in collaboration with trafik and sound composer michel redolfi. installed inside the temporary tunnel, connecting the forum des halles and the place carrée in paris, the light piece features successive, multicolored graphical scenes that harmoniously follow to a musical rhythm. a cadenced wave pattern of sound palpitates from the walls with light diffracting within the alveolar polycarbonate panels. spanning along the 40m tunnel, the 4m high sensory artwork enriches pedestrian’s experience as they walk along the transit route. transforming a regular tunnel into a magical and contemporary passage.
