In February it was announced that we would get a 745-foot aerial sculpture along Vancouver’s waterfront for TED. “Skies Painted with Unnumbered Sparks” went up last week, was illuminated on Friday night, and now we have just a few more days to take in its display.
Made from soft fibers, this sculpture installation will be available to the public in Vancouver from March 15th through the 22nd. It is designed to travel to other cities around the globe after the exhibition at the 2014 TED Conference – an “idea worth spreading.”
Artist Janet Echelman collaborated with Aaron Koblin who designed an incredible interactive component that enables the public to choreograph the lighting through physical gesture via their mobile phones.

While Skies Painted with Unnumbered Sparks will soon disappear, look for more public art around the city as we welcome back the Vancouver Biennale of Public Art this year as well.
