Oftentimes art projects sound odd in theory, but look awesome in practice. Case in point: the 'Sitooterie II' from Heatherwick Studio.

The idea behind Sitooterie II was to glue 5,000 aluminum pipes together. At night, the center of the structure would illuminate, flooding the tubes with light. Sitooterie II looks amazing during the day or the night; when the tubes are illuminated, the whole thing looks as though it is shooting off lasers of light.
