BOSTON (WHDH) - A free four-week winter illumination experience began on Friday at the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade in Boston.
Boston-based creative studio MF Dynamics will debut “Hatched: Breaking Through the Silence,” a visual and sound performance led by local artist Maria Finkelmeier.
From Jan. 22 through Feb. 21, viewers can enjoy more than 300 15-minute showings that highlight pieces of public artwork in the iconic open-air landscape.
Boston-based artist Maria Finkelmeier teamed up with Berklee-grad Pamela Hersch to create the new multi-sensory experience.
With the use of green-screens, the artists were able to create a birds-eye-view of musicians playing instruments at the famed-venue.
People gathering can scan a q-r code on their phone to listen to the music synchronized with the visuals.
“This year the Esplanade was as essential as ever before to the physical health and mental well-being of our visitors,” Michael Nichols, Executive Director of the Esplanade Association, told the Beacon Hill Times. “‘Hatched’ will provide a safe, open-air destination for people and their families to experience art while enjoying the tranquil beauty of the Esplanade in winter. This spectacular illumination experience is the perfect way to mark the Esplanade Association’s first 20 years of lighting the way forward for Boston’s riverfront park.”
