Congregation in Market Square- Light, Video and Sound Art Installation

Saturday night, in the dark and rain,  Steve and I went to dinner at La Cucina Flegrea to celebrate twenty one years since we first met.

When we got to Market Square we saw a crane, lights, people in motion,  and heard music.

Lines and shapes of light, moving designs and patterns were on the ground and on the large screen.  We saw the title of the work Congregation and I took some photos with the iPhone.

After dinner I shot a few more.  We were fascinated by groups of people following the circles of light on the pavement and then racing to another area and it showed up with light patterns and movement on the huge screen in front.

“Congregation is an interactive kinetic video and sound installation designed and choreographed for pedestrian performers, created by UK-based media artists KMA – Kit Monkman and Tom Wexler”

The score is by Peter Broderick from Portland.

Here is a Post-Gazette article by Diana Nelson Jones about the installation.  Lights on the side of the PPG building kept changing color.  It was a fun experience, despite the rain.
