Entry DescriptionA sea of sound and colour has recently spread over the german sky – consisting of 5,000 interactive lamps. SKY is the name of this innovation on the new glass ceiling of the former general post office in Leipzig. It was created and installed by the Viennese artist, designer and perception researcher SHA. The elaborate work of art stretching over 1,500m2 forms the centrepiece of the revitalized building, which stood empty for over a decade. The SKY lamps change the mood: over the course of the day and from season to season. SKY lives with the surrounding, the city, the pulses, rhythms, rituals.
