The other night as we were heading back into town from Sausalito via the golden gate I caught my first glimpse of this lit up from across town. Something Katherine had given me a heads up was coming months ago. A bit of art in action. Absolutely mesmerizing.
Leo Villareal | The Bay Lights
2 weeks ago • 16 notes
“When the switch gets flipped on March 5, powering on 25,000 LEDs strung over the vertical cables of the Bay Bridge, The Bay Lightswill be the largest light sculpture in the world, spanning 1.8 miles. It will also be the longest. That’s because the artist behind the installation,Leo Villareal, built custom software that will choreograph the LEDs according to an unrepeating sequence which will play over the project’s two-year span. From sunset until 2:00 a.m., Villareal’s dancing, flickering bridge will illuminate the sky every night into 2014.See the animated rendering!” (via architizer)
