Pic of the Day: Anish Kapoor’s “Bean” Gets Lit


One of our favorite Chicago landmarks is Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate in Millennium Park, but thanks to the imaginative powers of Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero, who comprise the creative collective LuftWerk, we barely recognize The Bean in the image above. Powered by ten projectors and set to music composed by Owen Clayton Condon, their highly-choreographed light show is the first-ever site-specific video and sound installation to involve 110-ton sculpture since its debut back in 2004. But it’s only temporary! If you live in the Windy City, you’ve got until February 20th to check it out in person; click through to see a video of the installation in action, and head over to Colossal for more stunning images.
