A 92-foot environmental light show

On October 8th the Leonardo museum opens at its new home in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.

One of the exciting features of the museum is the 92-foot wall and light show spanning the building lobby. Embedded LED lighting in its wall fins are connected to motion and environmental sensors on data for wind, seismic, and windfall activity around the world. This light show reacts and reflects this data in real time.

Yong Ju Lee and Brian Brush, partners in the design collaboration SoftRigid, designed the permanent wall as part of a competition the museum hosted.

Leonardo is a contemporary art, science, and technology museum dedicated to inspiring creativity and innovation.
