Illuminated Public Sculptures
The Luminous Field Installation Turns Cloud Gate into a Disco Ball

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Feb 20, 12

The Luminous Field art installation has successfully turned the Chicago-based Cloud Gate public sculpture (also known as The Bean) into a giant disco ball. British sculptor Anish Kapoor’s creation offers the perfect surface for this illuminating installation. The metal material reflects Luminous Field’s psychedelic video of shifting geometric shapes and colors stunningly.

Created by artists Sean Gallero and Petra Bachmaier of Luftwerk, Luminous Field is comprised of ten mounted projectors. When combined with The Bean, the projectors form a “‘playground’ for people to follow and engage with light,” according to the designers. Bachmaier elaborates, “We like the combination of image and surface, and the surface can be a structure, an architectural space, or a material. What happens between those two is what really interests us.”
