Tunnel with 40,000 LEDs Is the Closest You'll Ever Get to Light Speed
By Adam Frucci

I've never traveled through space at light speed, but I imagine that standing in this LED tunnel is pretty close to the dizzying experience. The video is just plain awesome.

The name of the installation is Multiverse, and it was installed by artist Leo Villareal in a 200-foot-long tunnel in the National Gallery of Art in Washingtong DC. The entire thing features 41,000 LEDs that animate and move on their own, using randomness to ensure that no one will see the same configurations twice. Multiverse will be on display throughout 2009.

Video is cool. kind of like a 70's flashback met by Star Wars. Some of the comments are funny too.

I want that for my main hallway at home.
I think it would be classy.
It would go with my fountain in the atrium with the sculpture that reads "THE WORLD IS YOURS"

Seriously, though, that's pretty cool.
