The Nautilus is an interactive installation created by SOFTlab in partnership with Lincoln and Atlantic Re:think. The installation is a field of 96 touch activated poles that when activated, create a symphony of sound and light. While a single touch produces one melody, simultaneous interactions with the installation create a complex, layered chorus. Each pole also contains a series of lights that respond to the array of tones created by the installation. Located at Pier 17 in Manhattan’s historic Seaport District, the site-specific installation’s mast like elements blend the piers edge with the surrounding docked ships.
