From March 31 – April 30, the LAPS: A Journey Through Time – Here and Now interactive art installation lights up at 401 Robert D. Ray Drive in the Historic East Village in Downtown Des Moines (DSM), just east of City Hall. A timelapse video shows how the six hourglass modules — with vivid light and sounds — showcased the passing of time as sand within glided back and forth. While time is out of our control, visitors to the installation moved the modules as they pleased, allowing them to reclaim time and be fully in the moment.
An exhibit for all ages, LAPS was designed by Olivier Landreville in collaboration with Serge Maheu. Each hourglass module reaches eight feet in height, so guests couldn’t miss it if they’re in the area. LAPS is the first of its kind to debut in Downtown DSM but certainly won’t be the last.
