Smart Highway by Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde

Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde has created a lighting installation that resembles the aurora borealis above a flood channel of the Netherlands' River IJssel. The waving lines of light spread across 1.6 hectares. The LEDs are projected through lenses to focus the light. The sources are installed around the periphery of the area, positioned so the beams criss cross in midair as they slowly move up and down – powered by motors.

Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde's illuminated bike path was inspired by Vincent van Gogh's "Starry Night" painting.
