In the John Hancock building of Chicago hangs Wolfgang Buttress' masterpiece - sculpture of 3,115 lights. Meant to depict the starry night sky of a less populous city each light is contained in a hand-blown glass bulb. The sphere hangs precariously in the lobby set against the backdrop of a black ceiling and reflected by a round mirror on the floor - making the iridescent lights stand out. Interestingly, the lights are positioned according to mapping done by astrophysicist Dr. Daniel Bayliss. (Photo by Valerie Baum)
