If the sun doesn't come, they take

When winter comes, some areas in the north of the globe have not seen the sun for months. With that in mind, two Norwegian artists decided to bring sunlight to these dark corners.

Lisa Pacini and Christine Istad created a circular sculpture made of LED about 3 meters in diameter. The brightness of the piece changes slowly, oscillating between various warm shades.

Since November 2012, the pair have been traveling through cities in northern Europe carrying their artificial sun as a way for people to get a little of the light they don't receive in the winter months. The sculpture has already crossed snow-covered roads in a truck body and even made an 8-day sea voyage.
