The Mattress Factory's newest permanent installation, Acupuncture by Hans Peter Kuhn, lights up the Pittsburgh skyline on this high gloss ceramic mug.
Made from LED light tubes,Acupunctureappears as long white lines of light. The "light sticks," as Kuhn calls them, appear to "pierce" through the top floor of the museum, coming out of the roof and the south-facing side of the Mattress Factory at 500 Sampsonia Way. The installation's size and configuration will make the piece visible from all angles, throughout the neighborhood and the city.
Hans Peter Kuhn is a Berlin-based artist and composer who creates large-scale, site-specific light and sound environments for public spaces, museums, theater, and dance.
