Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer has taken over the Park Avenue Tunnel running from 33rd Street to 40th Street in New York City.

Open to pedestrians between 7 am to 1 pm on August 10th and the 17th, the exhibition, “Voice Tunnel,” features an interactive light and sound installation.

The 1,400 foot long tunnel is transformed with 3000 theatrical spotlights.  Creating arches of light along the walls and ceiling, participants will be able to modify the intensity of light by their voice loudness.

The voices can be heard throughout the tunnel on various loudspeakers, with flashes of light making a Morse-like code throughout the tunnel.

Check out some images and a preview of the exhibition below.
