Timed to coincide with this week's TED Conference, an unusual piece of artwork is floating over downtown Vancouver.
Janet Echelman's Skies Painted with Unnumbered Sparks is a 745-foot sculpture hovering between the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel and the Vancouver Convention Centre, where this year's TED Conference opened today (March 17).
The soft-fibre multimedia work was created in collaboration with artist Aaron Koblin, creative director at Google’s Creative Lab, who met Echelman at TED2011.
In the daytime, the netlike scupture sways in the breeze, while at night, a number of projectors cause it to light up in a rainbow of colours, which can be controlled by a mobile device.
Here is a selection of photos from the compelling public sculpture, taken by contributors to our Flickr group.
Skies Painted with Unnumbered Sparks can be seen in Vancouver until March 23.
