LED Sculpture On Display at Chicago’s Art Institute

Most visit the Art Institute of Chicago to see Georges Seurat’s Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte. Now, a piece by Yves Behar/fuseproject will make its way into the museum’s modern wing.


Anima Terra, Latin for living earth, is a Samsung-sponsored lab project gone sculpture, celebrating the “inner glow” that is all around us—both natural and artificial in nature. It’s surely not the first time an LED-driven work of art has made its way inside a modern art gallery, but having grown up stalking the halls of the Art Institute on those occasional 3-day weekends when I had Monday off the school, it’s odd to think that what’s essentially a Samsung product sits amongst so much of art’s history.
