"Park Avenue Voice Tunnel," installation by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. The automobile-only tunnel runs from 33rd to 40th Streets in Manhattan, and hasn’t been available to pedestrians since the 1930s. As part of the city’s Summer Street art series, visitors can say anything they want into the microphone in the center and reverberations of each voice will sync with 3,000 theatrical lights to create a cascading effect of light and sound throughout the tunnel.
