    Temporary Laser Art at Seattle's Capitol Hill Light Rail Project

     

    Most Seattle natives will agree when you ask them if they think the light rail project off broadway is an eye sore. A massive expanse of concrete and fencing, it really tears into the look of Capitol HIll.

    But Sound Transit, the company behind the project slated to be finished in 2016 has aimed to change that.

     

    Artist Dan Corson begins drilling thousands of holes -- 3,500, to be exact -- as he creates a 65' x 125' garden of fiberglass reeds, varying in height from 2' to 8' in an undulating field. "At night a laser light show will play over the field, moving up and down and through the reeds, in a slow-moving constantly changing spectacle.

     

    It opened on Halloween night and is to continue through November 9th. With hopes of lasting longer.
