It is majestic: DanCoyote's Antonelli's Tower of Light

Hyperformalist DanCoyote Antonelli (aka DC Spensley) has been away from his keyboard for several weeks, and while I have not yet had a chance to catch up with him, word has it that he is feeling refreshed. Drop in at Brooklyn is Watching (teleport directly from here) and look up and into his Tower of Light.

...but when you do, you must take his tour (look for the white chair) and teleport to the various sections of this epic installation. In particular, be sure to go about 1,200m and look down from there... then ascend to about 2,100m and discover the surprises tucked into one of the two large blue pods.

There is a very high degree of difficulty in portraying what can be seen there, so I'm especially excited to point you to Arahan Claveau's video of this installation with audio that gives it a mysterious and shimmering quality, not unlike Stanislaw Lem's Solaris.

In addition, Arahan created the first in what will hopefully be a weekly series of videos capturing one or more art pieces that have been rezzed at Brooklyn is Watching just prior to their Wednesday podcast, which I've had the pleasure of participating in two weeks running. That video will be posted on the Brooklyn is Watching blog later tonight.
