    Your Playable City: Shadowing

    Here's a fun new Downtown installation, created by Jonathan Chomko and Matthew Rosier, in which streetlights play back the shadows of those who pass beneath them. No, for real. As a citizen walks under the lights, "the shadow of a previous visitor will walk, hop, or dance beside them, and then their own movements will be captured and displayed to the next passerby." And here's a map of locations.
    Through March 18
