Look Up, Look way up.

Stars exploding in the sky above you shimmer and morph in colour to delight your eyes.

Created by Prime Made Art, an artistic project by Calgary-based Robin Wylie, Starburst Is created from metal and LEDs, resulting in a harmonious convergence of form and technology. Programmed to shift and transform, the LEDs create a mesmerizing dance of light. Waves, pulses, and cascades of color travel across the metal towers, evoking a sense of movement and fluidity.
