Seaport District, NYC

Sea of Light activated a community. 

Symmetry Labs partnered with Howard Hughes to build community and foster interest in the revitalized NYC Seaport District. Thousands weathered winter snow to attend the sold out events with LED sculptures that reacted to movement, sound, and even body heat.

Sea of Light used 220,000 LEDs along with thermal cameras to make a fully reactive public art installation for thousands of people.

Custom acrylic domes, the first of their kind, combined with the interactive LEDs to create luminous portals that mirrored the nearby sea and delighted New Yorkers and visitors of all ages.
