Villareal's BUCKYBALL applies concepts of geometry and mathematical relationships within a towering 30-foot tall, illuminated sculpture. A commission of the Mad. Sq. Art program, Villareal's BUCKYBALL features two nested, geodesic sculptural spheres comprised of 180 LED tubes arranged in a series of pentagons and hexagons, known as a "Fullerene," referring to the form's discovery by Buckminster Fuller.

The best sound stage I've ever seen.  This was Nexus 2010.  They had a cauldron of flame under the geodesic sphere which sports 91 computer controlled flame spinerettes.  The dome on the left houses a tesla coil, and the flags in back are rising from a sweet-as-shit jungle gym.

One of Edinburgh's city centre gardens has been transformed into a field of swaying, colourful spheres as part of a unique art installation.  Field of Light, a contemporary light-based work by British artist Bruce Munro, is in St Andrew Square until 27 April.  It is the first public installation of Munro's work in Scotland.  It has 9,000 lighted glass orbs rising from illuminated stems and "bursts into bloom" at dusk.
