Where Technology Meets Artistry: The Singing Trees of Dante Park
Nestled in the vibrant area of Upper West Side, New York, are Lincoln Square Business Improvement District’s hanging vine Singing Trees at Dante Park. Offering a unique blend of art, technology, and nature, this immersive experience transforms eight majestic London Plane trees into a dazzling display of light and sound.
The installation features an array of light strands meticulously adorned on the trees. These aren’t just ordinary holiday decorations – they’re an interactive canvas that reacts to the energy and volume of the spectators. As visitors engage in singalongs, live music, clapping, and laughter, they activate a breathtaking spectacle of lights dancing and colours shifting.
The interactive installation is made possible through Aurora lighting technology, creating a surreal sensory experience that captivates and delights. The patterns and colours of the lights are not only responsive but customizable via the Aurora app, offering an ever-changing, interactive visual feast.
The Singing Trees were conceptualized to provide a unique holiday lighting experience, aiming to impress both locals and tourists alike. The installation has achieved this goal, garnering significant positive press and acclaim. It has been featured in prominent publications, celebrating its innovative design and engaging experience.
