I wish I had visited Philadelphia this weekend because I might have witnessed the 'Light Drift' art installation while enjoying an authentic Philly cheesesteak.

Created by Howeler + Yoon Architecture, the 'Light Drift' installation was comprised of 100 orbs of light that danced beautifully across the Schuylkill River. Passersby could sit on the landed orbs and the floating ones would change pattern via RFID tags. Take a look at the video to see this stunning display.
