Light Art Installation Kaskade

The light art installation »Kaskade« was designed by the light artist, musician, and composer Rainer Kehres specifically for the façade of the Town Hall to mark Karlsruhe becoming a UNESCO Creative City of Media Arts.

The 99 globes installed in a matrix, which can be individually controlled, radiate with recurring light shows and messages from the balcony of the town hall into the city and the whole world.
