The Sidney and Beirne Davis Art Center on Fort Myers' main downtown street was originally a post office and later a courthouse. In front are two fascinating light sculptures. Internal lights project nonsense words on nearby sidewalks, steps, walls, trees, cars and pedestrians. Very cool.
I like this kind of art!I was trying to understand what language it was before reading your text! :o)
I like it!:)
beautiful shot, jack.
This is creative, and I am sure it was a challenge to photograph. Fort Myers would be a good place to spend time in the winter. My late uncle spent winters, then eventually moved permanently from Michigan to Naples, Florida.
My 2 year old grandson would love this, letters are his favorite object. These letters also create a wonderful display.
I've never really understand this display, although I enjoy it. Must have been challenging to capture this at night with so many lights. Very nice!
I like this. I would enjoy studying the words shining on the walls around here.
Love this one Jack!
Totally cool Jack! Fantastic effect on the surrounding buildings and who doesn't love nonsense words!!
I agree -- a totally cool shot indeed! Hope your week is going well, Jack!
What a fantastic effect! Great shot, Jack.
I'm glad you explained this. Great photo of a great effect. The only problem I see is we've got enough nonsense in the word world now! :-)
For some reason I am not seeing any text with an explanation. I do like the effect though!

Lol @ Malyss, so was I! :-) This is absolutely fabulous, I'd go photo crazy!
What an extraordinary and imaginative piece of art. Great captures Jack - thanks for sharing (and for the explanation!). Happy Christmas
It's so lovely Jack, and unusual:)
Nice shot. It can't have been easy capturing something so ephemeral. What an interesting piece of art!
Those light sculptures are amazing!
Do they spin? Move at all? I love the photos, Jack, and the explanation, but if I were there and the words moved, I'm not convinced that my motion sickness bracelets would keep from being dizzy, sick-feeling.
Love the wreath, it would have been cool if the words actually made some sorta sense... like passages from famous books, looks nice nevertheless.
At first I tried to understand some word...
Oh, this is really spectacular!
wow! that looks amazing! too bad i had not seen this before visiting fort myers, then i certainly would have searched for it....
THIS IS FANTASTIC! So glad you pointed me to it! I'll have to plan a trip to Ft. Myers just to see it.
