The Living Light SculptureS

The Living Light Sculpture looks like a giant metal flower, or a man made approximation of a jungle canopy with artificial sunlight coming down through its branches. It's actually a digital map sculpture reporting air quality in Seoul, Korea.

The design is a rough map of the city's neighborhood as distinguished by "air boundaries".
The data is collected from 27 air monitoring stations; every 15 minutes the map lights up in order of highest to lowest air quality. [Living Light via bldgblog]
