“The Bean” by Designers Luftwerk


If you are a fan of public art or enjoyed the spectrums of light from the movie Tron:Legacy, then you will appreciate this aesthetic public work from the multimedia designers Luftwerk. The sculpture is called Cloud Gate (nicknamed The Bean) and is located in Chicago’s Millennium Park. The “Bean” is is composed of 168 stainless steel plates which gleam light from lasers intelligently placed in and around the sculpture.

The lighting projects neon geometric shapes which gleam out at you like an alien spaceship. You would almost expect a hydraulic hiss as perfectly hidden doors slide open to reveal a strange orbed shaped extra terrestrial form with a ray gun incinerating fleeing Chicago residents.
