The Luminous Field by LuftwerkIn is a striking video installation showcased in the center of Chicago’s Millennium Park. The sculptural art piece is made up of 10 video projectors that are mounted atop four structural towers.

Emitting both projected imagery and sound, the illuminated art piece is showcased underneath Anish Kapoor's famed 2006 Cloud Gate sculpture. The Luminous Field by LuftwerkIn also features disco dance floor imagery as well as color-infused geometric shapes that dance on projected screens.

The interactive art installation allows Millennium Park visitors to experience its virtual movement and to engage with its illuminated projections. The light and sound sculpture transforms a traditional public space into a visual wonderland that is both futuristic and whimsical in its design concept.
