A new solar-powered [1] Sun-Catcher lighting installation recently popped up in Clearwater, FL, where it brightens the night using energy from the sun. Part of the city’s Sculpture360 [2] program, the 15-foot-tall Sun-Catcher was made by Deedee Morrison’s studio [3]. It’s built from recycled aluminum and striking yellow lucite panels. An integrated solar panel captures the sun’s energy during daylight hours and lights up the sculpture — and downtown Clearwater — at night.
