Open channel


The structure is actually the “Open Channel” listening station. It comes to life only after dark when its power source – the municipal street lamps of the seaside Corniche – ignite. Once those lamps are illuminated, though, the arch promises to flash up at distant pedestrians like a wedding decoration on the doorway of a traditional village house, its modest sound system bursting forth with music.
