Luminous Motion

A walk with a colleague through the center of Winchester, England led to the view of a very interesting light sculpture. On first glance it is a simple column of stainless steel decorated by flashing lights. The magic? A text message from a mobile phone can be used to change the color and patterns of the lights.

Curious? You can find a couple of photos and the thoughts behind the sculpture on the Peter Freeman Luminous - Motion Winchester - 2002 site. I was also fascinated by some of the projects shown on the artist's home page. I'd love to have the opportunity to see more of them in person. Do you suppose that is a good reason to plan a return trip to England? (Oh, you're right. I don't need a reason, and I will be back.)
