Combining public art with mobile technology, Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer presented the world premiere of "Open Air," Sept. 20 - Oct. 14, 2012. Commissioned by the Association for Public Art, "Open Air" was a spectacular interactive light experience directed by participants' voices and GPS locations, illuminating the night sky from Philadelphia's historic Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The project was presented in conjunction with the 2012 Philadelphia Live Arts Festival and the 2012 DesignPhiladelphia Festival. openairphilly.net/
