During the day the slowly rotating object can be seen. Full rotation speed will be reached after dusk, when the pulsed uv-light sources are at work

Abstract Light-Art object with a remarkable size of 9 meters (30 feet) in diameter, rotating at a high speed of one rotation per second. The tip of the triangle reaches a speed of nearly 100 Kilometers per hour (60 mph). The surface is covered with flourescent material. Through activation from outside by pulsed ultraviolet light, astonishing optical effects occur. Because of the fast rotation and the pulsed uv radiation the boundaries dissolve completely for the eyes of the spectator, while constantly creating new forms
