LightRails – Colorful Viaduct Installation by Bill FitzGibbons

Bill FitzGibbons, sculptor and public artist, has created a welcoming installation over the dull railroad underpass in Birmingham, Alabama. Originally built in 1931 the underpass is a connection between downtown and a new urban space called Railroad Park. FitzGibbons aimed to create a friendly atmosphere for the visitors between these two districts. The project is called LightRails and made of computerized LED network which consists of 250 units and creates 16 million different colors and frequencies, giving safe and pleasant vibe to the area.
