two year plus project using Sony HD video camera ( (HDW-F900) to shoot footage, then he used elements from Barco "jumbo trons" sealed behind glass brick and made water proof, the water runs down the faces and out the mouths, very cool stufff. Has had some problems with green mold growing on the inside of some blocks(who knew?). He had no idea hw he was gonna build it when he presnted the model & idea, then he got funding and figured it out!
Students from our schol helped on the project cuz it's literally steps from our front door. Look up millenium park on the web, there is a great Anoosh Kapoor scultpure in the park called cloud gate that is stunning (locals are calling it "the bean") and a frank gehry designed bandshell.

That is a pretty fresh installation. It must be a quite a sight to see in person. Do you have any idea how the artist went about creating those images using just the LEDs?

aww sasquatch! It's only "electronic technology" making it big, nothing to be afraid of. If you would just show yourself, I could show it all to you and explain.
I love you sasquatch, you big galoot!
