Mattress Acupuncture

Hans Peter Kuhn - AcupunctureThis is an artist's impression of a proposed light installation on the Mattress Factory, Pittsburgh, USA. It's a museum of contemporary art which, I assume, retains its original name. The museum has commissioned Berlin-based artist Hans Peter Kuhn to install six cold-cathode light bars, averaging 100 feet in length, that will appear to pierce the building. It's called Acupuncture. The project is in the design and engineering stage while fundraising goes on to pay for it (title link). I suppose Acupuncture is one way of giving a gruesome piece of industrial architecture a facelift.
