Forum Chandelier by Luke Jerram

September 27, 2012

British artist Luke Jerram has completed this 17 foot tall solar powered kinetic chandelier consisting of 665 glass radiometers, which shimmer and flicker as they turn in the sunlight. Altering their speed with the subtle changes in lighting conditions, the vanes of each radiometer speed up and slow down throughout the day. Commissioned by the Bristol and Bath Science Park the artwork is on permanent display there.

You can see a video of the chandelier in action on YouTube – here.
