LEDs consume less energy and maintain a longer lifetime. Combining LEDs with art can have visually stunningly results. These large-scale LED sculptures were on an open-air stage of installations, exhibitions, works of art and design. Here are 16 aesthetically pleasing LED art sculptures that respect the environment while providing modern designs of energy-saving lighting solutions.

Fabulous Artworks of Italian Light Sculpture Festival

Light-based art lit up Xuanwu Lake Park in Nanjing, China, during the Italian Light Sculpture Festival. The “Light Tunnel,” on the left, was 450 meters or 1,476 feet, long. The three-dimensional murals were built into 75 light groupings which blend to make 13 Italian Baroque-style outdoor landscapes.

Reflecting off the mountain lake was a planned part of the LED sculptures, meant to enhance the differences of light and shadows.

Romance and reality merged in a brilliant illumination, yet managed to use one-tenth of incandescent light power consumption.
