New York City isn't always the easiest place to sit back and simply enjoy your surroundings, but the Voice Tunnel by artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer offers a serene spot for the usually hectic metropolis.

Appearing as part of the city's annual Summer Streets, an event to celebrate NYC's most popular public spaces, Voice Tunnel transforms the Park Avenue Tunnel into a modern light and sound installation. City dwellers and tourists alike can walk straight into the usually car-filled tunnel and speak into an intercom where the sound will turn into light fragments which change depending on the intensity of volume.

If you're planning a visit to the big apple sometime in August, consider skipping a typical visit to the Empire State building and head to the Voice Tunnel instead.
