Capturing Capacity

WHIMSICAL Luminariums by Architects of Air.

If you’ve ever had the desire to step into the pages of Dr.Seuss, keep your eye out for a Luminarium tour stop near you.  The UK based Architects of Air have designed and fabricated a glorious set of inflatable structures that they have dubbed ‘Luminariums’, which are touring the globe on a mind blowing mission.  Using a specialized polycarbonate film (that is less than a millimeter thick in areas!!! [ for you non-metric folk that is less than 1/20th of an inch!]), light is transmitted into the interior with such uniqueness, that it invokes a sense of surreality.  Fully immersed in various chroma of light-fall visitors express that they have never found themselves so calmed, or been in such a serene setting.  Be sure to check out the video at the bottom of this post to see how the structure is set up.

OVERWHELMINGLY SPECTACULAR!
