Marvel at the interactive LED atmosphere of the Firmament light installation on view at Discovery Green now through Sunday, January 8, 2017.

Update 1/6/17: Due to technical difficulties, Firmament has closed.

Created by artist and technology innovator Christopher Schardt, Firmament is a stunning 52-foot wide awning of 21,600 LED lights. Suspended from a 42-foot high aluminum tower, Schardt’s mesmerizing creation presents an ever-moving cacophony of colors, light, music, and motion. 

Whether you take a spot on the ground and gaze up at the never-ending waves of color and light, or simply watch from outside the hypnotic tarp, Firmament is a color crowd pleaser (and certain to be a popular post on your Instagram and other social media accounts.
