Starry Night: sunset to sunrise
"...I had to travel down A Street and under Summer Street where I was able to finally view Starry Night by Lisa Greenfield and Daniel van Ackere. I’ve looked at Starry Night listed on the Boston Art Commission’s website constantly wondering, “Where the hell is that?” Sweet, sweet Serendipity intervened on Saturday and led me right to the installation that is scheduled to brighten the underpass for the next eight years. Starry Night is a net of twinkling LED lights that are connected to a programmable interface. I’ve often seen Starry Night photographed in all blue but on Saturday I saw a dancing rainbow of colors. “Oh, what a beautiful underpass!”, said no one ever, that is, until Starry Night was installed. Starry Night takes a dark and overlooked space and turns it into something beautiful and even adds an element of safety to it."
