Glow Home: Stained-Glass Art House Lights Up the Night


Understated by day, this house-shaped art installation comes alive at night with a dazzling spectrum of projected colors. Illuminated from the inside, it casts beautiful light on the brick-paved ground of the public square around it.

New York artist Tom Fruin put this piece on display alongside the water on a plaza in Copenhagen, at once an out-of-place abstraction and a contextual response to the multi-colored lights found downtown at night.

Thousand of plexi-glass scraps went into its construction, culled from closed-down factories and dumpster-diving expeditions in the area – they were then meticulously assembled within a dark framework providing structural support and visual boundaries.
