About the artwork

Interactive light installation – an unique interactive light design that transforms bridges. Orginally commissioned by Curated Places and Visit Reykjavik.

Pink Enchantment is an interactive light installation that transforms bridges into stunning artwork. As visitors walk across the bridge, clouds of colours will appear creating an electric, vibrant atmosphere. The light and interactive design is unique to the site, consisting of a series of interactive section, which together will become a large visual installation that is tailored to its location. Each bridge looks different, scaled to different sizes in response to the opportunities and limitations presented by the site.

The installation is designed to create a high impact, immediate transformation. The work creates opportunities for people to interact with the artwork and each other in an imaginative way. Pink Enchantment is an ephemeral interactive installation that connects with the essential elements of light. The project is inspired by the grandness of ever changing sky and ocean waves that breaks into a mist of colours. As visitors walk across the bridge they will activate short, cloud-like bursts of colour. The smoke cloud lingers, and creates an immersive experience which inspire and intrigue audiences. When there is no pedestrian traffic on the bridge, it will revert to a single colour lighting the structure of the bridge, until a visitor walks across and the bridge comes to life. Each section is independent and visitors can play independently or collaborate to cover the bridge in colour clouds. The work is transient, reacting to nature and win. Audiences will see high floating coloured haze or low hanging, mysterious mist.

This work suitable for a walking and cycling bridge only, preferably a narrow bridge.

Pink Enchantment, an installation by Tine Bech, is a breath-taking sight which brings together light and water. As people walk across the bridge, bursts of pink fog are omitted and hidden lights illuminate the way along the route. Visible from afar, this installation artwork immerses participants in an ethereal pink light as they cross over the water.

The work was previously shown on a 70 m long and 2.5 m wide pedestrian bridge leading into the Reykjavik City Hall Iceland in 2014, and on the Cupid Bridge pedestrian bridge (30m long x 10m wide) in Canary Wharf London 2016.

What people said

The approach to Reykjavik City Hall was transformed thanks to Tine Bech. Her beautiful work drew thousands of visitors to the building and could be seen from miles away – and when it blended with the Nordic Lights, it created magic like never before seen in our city. It was stunning and people loved it, so do I. It was a major hit in the city and we are so proud to have had you here.
