Bridges is an urban scale project that seeks to bring the wonder of the night sky back to the people of Chicago. I intend to install nearly a thousand special high powered lights that would be installed into the bed of the Chicago River between the Michigan Ave Bridge to the State Street Bridge. These lights would be programmed to actively reflect the actual celestial bodies as they would appear above if one could see beyond the glow Chicago’s lights. The site I chose is in the heart of the city, and is the most scenic part of the a city that has many, this is precisely why I chose it. Here the people of Chicago and tourists alike come to marvel the world class architecture looming above the Chicago River crisscrossed by the many storied bridges of this town. And below these, I would place the stars. I do not think to compete with the sites existing beauty but rather provide a focal point for contemplation and meditation that speaks to a universe beyond.
