A Rainbow Bridge After Finals.

Before starting this post, I must apologize. I know my IG said that today's post would involve the photo from my #100happydays yesterday, but this was just so cool that I had to share it first. But check back, because that post will be up next! :)


So the first two days after I finished finals [except for Spanish...did that this morning...] were spent out of town. I don't know how much you can tell it by my blog, but I LOVE to travel. If I'm not busy and have the money, I am never in the same place. Yesterday I spent the day in Memphis with my boyfriend Stephen and today I drove down to Birmingham with Drew. While I have a ridiculous amount of photos to put up eventually, first I wanted to share [what I at least thought was] the coolest thing ever.


We visited numerous places in Birmingham today, but the last place we stopped by was this bridge. A rainbow bridge. And honestly, I know nothing about it other than the fact that Drew told me it is an art instillation that a man did in place of the regular lights underneath the overpass.
Long story short - the lights change colors.


Just so you know - this is Drew. ^

  6. Hey everybody! This is Drew. Since there's been a bit of interest in having your own Rainbow Bridge experience, I've cobbled together some information about the art instillation, and I'll be providing an address.
    For those of you who don't really want to know the origin of the project and would rather just go and check out a cool light show, the location is the 18th st. railroad underpass, about five blocks from the Five points statue. It's right by Railroad Park. Sorry I couldn't be more specific, but I'm sure you'll be able to find it with the clues provided.
    So, the project is actually called Light Rails. And it was designed by an artist called Bill Fitzgibbons, and installed with the help of an organization called REV Birmingham. The aim of the project was to add a feeling of safety and wonder to the previously dark historic 18th st. railroad underpass. There are thousands of LED lights, all run to a single motherboard that allows Fitzgibbons to program any sequence he likes. I'd suggest checking out the rest of his work. He's got a lot of similar projects using LED's to change the appearance of several buildings. If you can't make it to Birmingham, then chances are there is one near your neck of the woods.
    Hope this was helpful!
