the aliens have landed (and they’re us)

Luke Jerram has created some mind bending largeArt in the past (see his installations page for a some fine examples). His latest work takes the cake IMO.

In the city of Bristol (Pop 500,000) there are on average 11 babies born every day.

First breath celebrates each new life with a searchlight projecting up into the nights sky. The lights are sited next to the homes of families where a new baby has just been born.

Across the city vast ethereal towers of light will be seen touching the clouds. The lights will change location each day to the next set of homes, in preparation for the night’s declaration. Lasting for 2 weeks First breath is both private and personal experience as well a large scale public artwork.
