The Gijs Van Vaerenbergh Skylight installation illuminates the city below through the use of sixteen different lighting components which are affixed to a towering, construction crane.

Constructed in Leuven, Belgium the massive structure pivots throughout the day and night to cast a bright, white glow over the buildings and shuffling pedestrians that are a part of the town center’s bustling culture.

The installation will undoubtedly go unnoticed as art by some passersby due to the fact that it melds seamlessly with the construction site that it is a part of. The giant crane light also moves at varying speeds which, in conjunction with changing weather patterns and differing times of day, alters the effect and the intensity of the light that casts a glow over the hustle and bustle of the busy street below.
