Happy Friday Folks!
Your Environment Of the Week will be....(drum roll)....
Chimecco by Mark Nixon.
Mark Nixon of London studio CZWG has turned a bridge in Aarhus, Denmark, into a musical instrument by hanging metal pipes from the underside.
Varying in length, the 600 gold-anodized aluminium pipes move freely in the breeze, sounding like a traditional wind chime when they collide.
People on the bridge can touch interactive nodes on its surface to activate the chimes in a controlled order, playing the instrument.
Named Chimecco, the sculpture forms part of this year’s Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, which takes place entirely outdoors.
