‘Reflecting the rhythm of the city’
Transit Mantra is a public space installation that hovers over cyclists and pedestrians as they pass through the Dutmala tunnel in Eindhoven. With interactive sound and light, the work responds to the speed and the number of passers-by and thus constantly changes the public space.
Not only does the installation illuminate the tunnel, the light trail of the people who preceded lingers for a whole. Eindhoven’s alderman for innovation, design, culture and public space Mary-Ann Schreurs: “People always experience a certain sense of insecurity in bicycle tunnels. When they see that others have preceded them, this feeling softens. Transit Mantra is an example of technology that can be aesthetic, innovative and functional at the same time. "
