Acclaimed installation artists Greyworld launched a massive artificial sun with the power of 60,000 light bulbs in London?s Trafalgar Square in collaboration with Tropicana?s ?Brighter Mornings? campaign.
The ?sun? has a surface area of 200m2 and weighs over 2,500kgs. Its internal light source produces 4- million lumens of light, the equivalent of 60,000 light bulbs, making the artwork visible from space.
Andrew Shoben, founder of Greyworld said: “There are very few moments more spectacular and up- lifting than watching an early morning sunrise. We have tried to capture the evocative nature of this natural phenomenon with the Trafalgar Sun, which has been unveiled to help boost the mood of those who experience our latest piece of public art.”
