Photographer's Note

I was inspired to post this photo after seeing Bulent Atalay's earlier posting of the same scene.

Multiverse is a complex light sculpture created by American artist Leo Villareal and may be seen and experienced by visitors as they pass through the Concourse walkway between the East and West Buildings of the National Gallery of Art. Commissioned by the Gallery and on view until November 2009, the work features approximately 41,000 computer-programmed LED (light-emitting diode) nodes that run through channels along the entire 200-foot-long space. The ever-changing pattern of lights are meant to mimic the universe. The lights turn on and off in a choreographed manner, and create a swirling waves across the surface, and a suggestion of “twinkling stars, rushing water and bouncing polka dots.” There is a random order in the design patterns.

Handheld. PP work included exposure adjustment, slight desaturation, then resizing.
