    Okay, I appreciate the arts and I read the official description of the lighted domes on the Parkway. Something about frozen water melting and Ben Franklin's lightning experiments.

    Winter Fountains - Association for Public Art

    But what's with the 90s computer animation of an asteroid belt projected on the four domes?

    Can you imagine if the domes had projected actual running water on them like from Niagara Falls? To see real flowing water in the middle of winter would have been a tour de force. These bizarre asteroid belts, not so much.

    And the continually running diesel motors to power the projectors . . . . .o_O

    Well, the artist's vision is what it is. It's not our place to tell her how to do her art, although we can certainly choose whether to like it or not.
