LED work of art called ‘’Multiverse’’ by Leo Villareal.

Throughout the last four decades a growing number of artists have explored the use of light to frame and create spaces in the built environment.

This light sculpture at the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC is a nice project to see how LED technology is expanding creative design possibilities.

It’s the American artist Leo Villareal who created this light sculpture call ‘’Multiverse’’. This work of art may be experienced by visitors as they pass through the Concourse walkway between the East and West Buildings of the National Gallery of Art in Washington. It consists of 41,000 LED nodes programmed to light sequentially to create changing abstract patterns and this through channels along the 200-foot-long space. Development of this LED project began in 2005, and installation took four months to complete.
