Art Installation Recreates Aurora Borealis Anywhere

In case you can’t make it to the Nordics to view Aurora Borealis for yourself, it’s possible that the Northern Lights can come to you.

Artist Dan Acher’s installation Borealis combines high-powered lasers with particle clouds to create the illusion of the bright green and blue celestial phenomenon anywhere. Changing weather conditions ensure that the experience will never look the same way twice.

Acher debuted Borealis at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. Watch it in action below.
