Symphony Interactive Nuit Blanche 2014 Silent Rise

Nuit Blanche 2014 – Glenda León – Silent Rise

With this sculpture, the artist explores the notion of silence in relation to spiritual development. Silent Rise invites the audience to experience the act of listening from a new point of view: seeing sound, listening to images.

The Challenge

With safety always a top priority at these public events, the rising rungs of musical staves required solid anchoring in the event that an unruly festival goer might actually try to climb them. Symphony Interactive designed anchoring sleeves that accepted the two side rails of the art piece, which were then embedded in concrete.
