It looks like a portal to another dimension, or maybe a time-travel machine. Multiverse is an art installation in a 200-foot-long tunnel between buildings in the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. Designed by artist Leo Villareal, it features around 41,000 LED nodes. I see there's a moving sidewalk in the tunnel. I'm afraid if I were so lucky as to see this in person, I might never make it to the next building! Link -via Gizmodo

It's a very similar effect to (but more elaborate than) one used for decades at Disney World. As I recall, it's used on Space Mountain at the Magic Kingdom, and on Spaceship Earth at Epcot. It's been a while since I've been to either so they may have changed them. It's a bit disorienting and surprisingly effective at making a slow-moving ride feel much faster than it really is! Especially when combined with a fan blowing cool air on riders. I think those rides used fluorescent tubes and/or fiber optics instead of LEDs.
