The New York-based artist Theresa Himmer decided to combine fashion and urban landscapes in a fascinating and colorful way. By creating waterfalls of color and shine, Himmer decorated streets and buildings using sequins, plastic and plywood.

With a mesmerizing mixture of hues and mind-blowing visual effects, Himmer's installations create a series of oases mounted on walls that give life and energy to otherwise deteriorating city facades. These art pieces give the impression that a sparkling liquid is slowing dripping from the top of buildings. The blue ones resemble paradisaical waters and the pink and yellow ones resemble volcanic lava.

These rivers of sequins are located in Theresa Reykjavik, Iceland, and the amount of work dedicated to this glittery production was extensive. The result is impressive and uplifting for city dwellers.
