I recently worked with my friends Dan Sternof Beyer, Kawandeep Virdee, and Bevan Weissman of New American Public Art (NAPA), and Karen Stein Shanley of goodgood on a public art piece called Listener.

Listener is an interactive light installation that responds to the ambient and intentional sounds around it, transforming static space into a dynamic public place. You can see it for the next couple months on the Fort Point Channel Harborwalk between Congress Street and Northern Avenue. It’s outside of the Boston Children’s Museum, right next to the giant milk bottle.

Check out this quick video showing Listener in action:

You can also check out photos of our construction process over on the NAPA blog.
