  2. The Northern Lights experience. Anywhere and anytime.

    BOREALIS
    A new touring artwork by Swiss artist Dan Acher

    This brand new piece brings the experience of the Northern Lights to cities the world over. Time slows down as eyes look up. An aurora, here and now, in our latitudes?

    Dan Acher's creation is as much a work of art as it is a technological performance. High power laser beams travel through particle clouds to create the illusion. Variations in movement, colour, and density, together with changing weather conditions, give infinite variations. A unique aurora is created each time.

    Throughout the ages man has attributed countless legends to the phenomenon. BOREALIS is about our ancestral communion with nature and about our recent compulsion to control it.

    OXSA's musical composition supports this monumental piece, premiered over the Rolex Learning Centre at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology to mark the opening of the new ArtLab building in November 2016.

    Dan Acher's city-wide installations are about connection in shared environments, bringing the ceremonial back into our streets. From immersive streetlight orchestras through to monumental urban projections, his designs have ranged from targeted interventions to events created for audiences of over 90,000.

    Dan's previous work has been featured in The Creators Project and Shareable amongst others. He is an Ashoka Swiss Changemaker and is regularly invited to share his vision. For more, see his recent TEDx talk: happycitylab.com/en/project/dan-acher/

  3. Du mercredi 8 au mardi 21 Juin 2016, 55 pianos de rue ont amené de la musique dans les rues de 20 municipalités du « Grand Genève ». Situés dans les parcs publics, les rues et sur les places, les pianos étaient à la disposition du public et permettront des rencontres magiques, parfois improbables, grâce à ce formidable outil de lien social qu’est la musique partagée.
