The Chandelier Harp is an interactive instrument played by passing your body through the low voltage lasers that shine from the Chandelier Harp to the ground. Much like plucking the string of a harp, passing through the beams triggers custom circuitry and sensors to produce musical notes. Designed for group, collaborative play, The Chandelier Harp allows participants to create, play, and dance music together.
The Chandelier Harp can install in one of two ways. It can be hung from the ceiling (as a free hanging chandelier), or it can be assembled on custom stands for stand-alone exterior placement.
The Chandelier Harp is part of Lewin’s “Have Art Will Travel Program” which seeks to create dynamic, participatory, public art experiences worldwide. Lewin’s traveling works provide an unprecedented level of interactivity and can transforms the way we interact with art and each other.
Lewin’s Laser Harp Series is an evolution of immersive installations using movement and laser light to trigger sound. I have been creating light harps since the mid 1990′s. These harps have varied from art installations, stage and performance installations, and large outdoor sculptures
