Metalmatisse is an interactive, stainless-steel, light and sound sculpture designed to complement the formal European landscape of MacArthur Square. Visitors activate lights and sounds in 14 locations by standing in view of an aimed sensor in each flower. Periodically the entire sculpture comes to life in an orchestrated chorus of light and sound. A vase and bouquet are loosely adapted from paintings of flowers by French artist Henri Matisse with a distinctly modern statement of scale and exuberance.
