This Psychedelic Art Installation May Induce a Drug-Free Trip


Los Angeles is trying to up the ante on public art, and this 15,000-square-foot band of glittering silver streamers is certainly a start. Patrick Shearn's Liquid Shard was produced with the help of Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks and the nonprofit Now Art LA, and sits atop Pershing Square. Shearn's company, Poetic Kinetics, has created large-scale works for pretty much every major music festival, so that may account for some of the psychedelic vibes we're feeling here.
