Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) in West Bretton has launched a new interactive light and sound artwork to brighten up this winter.
Light Organ has been installed in YSP’s Chapel and will be open until Sunday 21 January 2024, as part of the Wakefield’s Light Up 2023 programme.
Audiences of all ages are invited to sing, talk and clap into microphones to activate Light Organ – a series of elegant pipes that transform the noises into a sculptural display of colourful, glowing lights. Created by artists Akeelah Bertram and Adam Glatherine with creative technologist Simon Fletcher, Light Organ is a beautiful, vibrant work that allows visitors of all ages and abilities to interact with something very uplifting and playful – perfect for the winter months.
Sarah Coulson, Deputy Curator at YSP, said: “We are delighted to be part of the 2023 Light Up Wakefield weekend and the Light Organ is the perfect introduction to art that can be enjoyed by all ages. The Light Organ allows people to create their own personal light show and demonstrates that art really does come in all shapes, sizes and, in this case, sound.”
