San Francisco – Oakland Bay Bridge celebrates 75th Anniversary
The Bay Lights is a fine art piece designed to be installed on the western span. Measuring 1.8-miles-long and 50-feet-high, the high-tech light sculpture design features 25,000 individually programmable, energy-efficient LED lights mounted on the bridge's vertical cables.
The Bay Lights is the world’s largest light sculpture, 1.8 miles wide and 500 feet high and a monumental tour de force eight times the scale of the Eiffel Tower’s 100th Anniversary lighting. Using 25,000 white individually programmed LED lights, artist Leo Villareal will create complex algorithms and patterns in a dazzling display across the bridge’s west span. It will impact an audience of over 50 million people in the Bay Area alone, with billions more seeing THE BAY LIGHTS in media and online over two years, starting with a Grand Lighting Ceremony on March 5, 2013.
THE BAY LIGHTS is a site specific installation. The artist will use patterns of weather, the water and the traffic of cars, ships and wildlife as inspiration for creating his software algorithms. The patterns will never repeat. The LEDs are high efficiency and the power used will be offset by solar credits for the least environmental impact. Only $11,000 per year is allocated to energy cost.
