Dancing Columns, by Snarkitecture at the Santa Monica Pier Twilight Concert series. Snarkitecture is brought to the Summer series by Snap Inc, sponsor of the Santa Monica Twilight Concert Series. Dancing Columns is an interactive architectural installation that invite visitors to explore, play and relax amongst and environment made from inflatable Dancing Columns. Visitors are invited to move within and around the grid of columns, glimpsing other concealed and revealed by the shifting vertical forms as the columns rise and fall in unpredictable and playful ways. The soft material encourages people to touch and interact with their architectural surroundings and in turn, engage in and unexpected and memorable shared experience.

Snarkitecture is a New York-based collaborative practice established to investigate the boundaries between art and architecture. The name is drawn from Lewis Carroll’s The Hunting of The Snark, a poem describing the “impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature.” In its search for the unknown, Snarkitecture creates architectural-scale projects, installations, and objects.
