Sixteen wind turbines are integrated into this design to generate the power for thousands of LED lights. This eco-friendly, technology driven public art is here temporarily, making the Rachel Carson Bridge sparkle for the Christmas season. Yeah, I know, we're supposed to call it
Sparkle Season or some other euphemism, but whatever you call it, the non-denominational artwork is scheduled to be here from Light Up Night until New Year's Eve (18 Nov - 31 Dec 2016).
A computer system controls every strip of lights and can be programmed remotely. During the Light Up Night festivities we watched the light patterns changing in color and rhythm. Definitely a festive addition to the city lights.
