Light instead of bricks

Light is a incredibly capacious “material” for artist, especially in the modern age, overflowing with electricity – and numerous example of this thesis can be found worldwide.  We are all familiar with architectural illuminations of sights, and one of the most popular in this field, at least here in Old Europe, are cathedrals and churches. But why not a church made of light?

Towering nearly 100 feet into the air, this cathedral is made up of 55,000 LED lights. Cagna Illumination’s light cathedral was designed as an entrance for the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. Because LED lights are so energy-efficient, the entire display consumed only 20 kilowatts per hour.
