Installation has begun on the new light sculpture thing we told you about in September on the cables of the Bay Bridge. It's an LED art installation by artist Leo Villareal, and it's in celebration of the bridge's 75th anniversary, which technically was last year, but you know, some things happen late in S.F.
The full unveiling won't happen until March, after which the lights will be on for two years, but there's a new video of some of the 25,000 LED lights getting installed and tested along the span this past week. As the sponsor organization The Bay Lights exclaims, "1,000 lights in motion. 24,000 to go!"
In any event, it looks awesome, we just hope it doesn't cause too many car crashes in all of its distracting awesomeness, on the Embarcadero, the bridge, or wherever else.
Below, the earlier preview of the project from ABC 7's finest wig model, Don Sanchez.
