Artist Stuart Williams talks about his luminous grid project, installed in 1993, which was the size of 8 football fields and used 1,680 T-8 fluorescent lamps:
Approximately 20,000 person hours of labor were expended. It took a team
of 12 people, one month to pre-assemble various electrical components
off-site. Then it took another month to assemble the project on site. We

installation was in place for one month. It then took about five days to
remove everything from the site…
