How Five Installations Transformed Downtown Pittsburgh into a City of Light

Light-based artists from around the world have turned to Pittsburgh as an urban incubation space. Austrian artist, Erwin Redl, built Flow, the iconic red structure above the Wood Street T-Station. Dutch/Slovenian collective, Informationlab, installed Cell Phone Disco in Tito Way, lighting up the alleyways Pittsburghers know and love. Wood Street Galleries, since its inception, has regularly invited renown light-based artists to transform their downtown gallery space.

The five installations are Sign of Light by Robert Wilson and Richard Gluckman, Flow by Erwin Redl, Cell Phone Disco by Informationlab, 168 Lightbulbs by Jim Campbell and Prismatica by RAW Design in collaboration with ATOMIC3.
