This is the sculpture “Cloud Gate” (2004) by Anish Kapoor in Chicago’s Millennium Park, which has been integrated into a new temporary sculptural installation whose colored lights are synched up and change with a related musical track. The light/music design is by Luftwerk, a collaborative of artists.
We should aim for something this remarkable for a new work of public art if we commission a sculpture to be installed in the vicinity of Thorndike and Dutton streets, near the Swamp Locks canal complex and western edge of the Hamilton Canal District. Close by will be the new Judicial Center.
Here’s what “Cloud Gate” looks like without the new temporary lighting installation. This web photo is used courtesy of cityprofile.com
