By using sound and light, German environmental artist Hans Peter Kuhn has transformed urban spaces, buildings, bridges and worn-out industrial plants all over the world into magical, glowing places. This richly illustrated volume documents indoor installations and spectacular large-scale outdoor works of the last five years.
The Mattress Factory commissioned Berlin-based artist Hans Peter Kuhn to create a lighted sculpture on the roof of its six story building on Pittsburgh’s Northside. The sculpture, titled Acupuncture, appears as long lines of white light piercing the roof and walls of the building. Their alignment changes dramatically depending on the angle from which they are viewed. Each line is 65 to 100 feet in length and will utilize customized LED technology. The design and engineering phase of this project has been completed. The Mattress Factory has raised a substantial amount of money for this project, and they need your support to complete it. Every dollar helps!
