You can now hitch a ride on these glowing musical seesaws

The internationally renowned art installation has arrived in the Seaport.


Just in time for next week’s spring-like weather, 12 glowing musical seesaws have been installed in the Seaport.

 

The internationally renowned public art installation, known as Impulse, opened in the Seaport on Friday. The free installation is designed to animate public spaces during dull winter months with its LED lights and sound sequences, both of which vary in intensity as people ride them.

 

The glowing seesaws have previously made appearances in Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, Montreal, London, and Scottsdale. They also took over Harvard Yard in 2017 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ARTS FIRST, Harvard’s annual showcase of student and faculty creativity.

 

The public art piece will be open in the Seaport through April 8, giving Bostonians well over a month to catch a ride on the illuminated playground.
