Permanent lighting installation by Mily-on, commissioned for the Schwarzman-Toll Pavilion

Abington Art Center's Pavilion was built in 2000 and designed to engage with the natural setting and the Center's Sculpture Park. During 2016 renovations, the 2500 sq. ft. ceiling needed to be replaced and Mily-on was asked to create both an artistic piece and a practical solution for the structure and its use as a space for private and public events.

The resulting installation lifts the height of the ceiling and uses the structural steel of the roof to hold thousands of fiber optic strands. Like a loom, the fibers have been woven into a pattern that changes its effect from a delicate translucence during the day to the starry glow of the night sky.
