A Mathematically Galaxy Light Installation!

These lights are inspired by maths theorem and created by Berlin-based artist Olafur Eliasson. There are a series of geometric figures hanging overhead like a rotating universe of celestial black jewels. The shapes use LEDs for the lights, which are fit into the edges.

The artist explain,”It consists of a group of twenty-seven polyhedra suspended from the ceiling and arranged in two horizontally concentric circles. The polyhedra are arranged in a clockwise sequence in which each form has more faces than the last. These are organisable into nine ‘families’ of three related forms. Two of the three are dual polyhedra – meaning that the number of vertices on the one polyhedron is equal to the number of faces on the other – and the third, hanging in the inner circle, is a combination of the two.”

Olafur Eliasson of Berlin dubs his creation “Your Sound Galaxy.” It consists of  geometric shapes suspended from the ceiling, rotating slowly like a galaxy. The “sound” part of the title refers not to any sound (it doesn’t have any) but to the composition of the shapes. It’s looks pretty cool!
