A new fixture in the Bristol and Bath Science Park is the largest sun powered light fixture in the world.

Visitors of the newly-opened Bristol and Bath Science Park now can experience the world’s largest solar chandelier. Measuring 15 feet in length, the beautiful fixture is composed of 665 glass bulbs. The London-based artist, Luke Jerram, says his inspiration comes from an interest in light, engineering and science, as well as being color-blind:

For many years after the invention of the radiometer, a fierce debate raged about how they worked and it was many years before it was fully explained. They are still beautiful, inspiring and thought provoking…in a way, the chandelier couldn’t really be anywhere else but Bristol and Bath Science Park, a place built to solve scientific riddles and to lead to innovation.
