This is kind of amazing. A building in Brussels known as the Dexia Tower has got lightning installations behind 4200 of it’s 6000 windows.  Each installation consisting on average of 12 light bulbs, each with three LEDs – a green, a red and a blue – that can be combined into a complete colour palette. It can show figures, letters, geometric shapes with various effects and also graphics. A rapid change in the colour of the lamps instantaneously gives an impression of movement.

The building has been a host for various light shows, for example the Touch project in which visitors could control the display from the opposite street using a touch screen. People were allowed to light the building in a personal way for a few moments and to send a souvenir picture of the light show to their e-mail addresses.
