World-renowned Spanish artist SpY recently created a light up installation called 'Moon' located in Lausanne, Switzerland. The installation featured an enormous, light-up crescent moon that was suspended in the night sky using a crane.

The 'Moon' art installation creatively juxtaposed artificiality with nature by suspending a man-made moon alongside the urban landscape of Lausanne at night. The installation centers around a plastic, man-made white moon shaped like a crescent that is roughly four stories high. Inside the plastic moon are several white LED lights that replicate the moon's luminous glow in the night sky. The 'Moon' is suspended from an industrial crane and left hanging in the urban sky throughout the night time to create a dazzling work of art.
