Amazing Art Made With Lights

This cathedral in Ghent, Belgium is brilliantly lit by 55,000 LED lights.  If I attended a mass/service here I wouldn’t be listening to anything being said I’m pretty sure.

Artist Eric Franklin is the creator of this glowing skeleton, which took him over two years to make.  It is called “Embodiment” and is made of 10 separate units of glass formed from borosilicate glass tubing. The skeleton is filled with krypton to create a neon-like glowing effect.

Artist Bruce Munro created this stunning display by placing over 5,000 Christmas lights on top of acrylic stems.  The work of art is appropriately called “Field of Lights”.

Urban artist Bill Fitz-Gibbons specializes in illuminating urban areas with neon lights as seen here with The Alamo in San Antonio, TX and a bridge underpass.

Sculptor Jim Sanborn is the creator of this stunning work of art.  It is actually a metal sculpture with phrases of poetry printed on it.  It is lit from the inside at night which cast the words on the surrounding area.
