Watchers in Darkness

Behold shrouded figures standing watch over us all, each of them covered in light in all places both light and dark. These are a set of sculptures called “Light Guards,” designed and executed by designer / artist Manfred Kielnhofer. Each of them is a lamp sculpture, fabric draped over an invisible human-like shape. Each one of them is also polyester matched with energy sensitive lamps glowing at 32 W each.

These seem so spectacular. They remind me of the band SUNNO))), except they’re light and spectacularly gorgeous instead of darkest night. To have these sitting about your city is to have something miraculous keeping an eye on your whole spiritual population.

Designer: Manfred Kielnhofer
