Exemplifying crowd engagement, 'Voice Array' by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer is an installation with a breath of light.

The installation is being showcased at the Mexican-Canadian artist's fourth solo show at the Bitforms gallery on New York. It is a engaging display that combines the auditory and visual to create a multi-sensory experience for its viewers. The installation, titled 'Voice Array' visually processes sound. In this piece, speakers record their message which then travels across the installation lighting up the LED line light display.

According to Co.Design: "As more participants speak into the box, their words are stored in the line, until the entire array is full." Once this occurs, previous participant's messages are heard at the other end of the light installation. This piece is progressive in its inclusion of spectators to create a multi-sensory experience, and making art interactive.
