Swirling Op-Art On The High Trestle Trail Bridge

By day the High Trestle Trail Bridge in Des Moines, Iowa looks pretty normal, aside from the tilted steel beams above the footpath, but at night the bridge lights up and blows minds.

Here's more on this brightly glowing bridge:

Towering 13 stories above the Des Moines River Valley in Iowa, The High Trestle Trail Bridge is one of the largest foot bridges in the world. Completed last year, the bridge now comes complete with one of the best examples of public art I’ve seen in a long time. Designed by David B. Dahlquist of RDG Dahlquist Art Studio, the steel  beams that swirl around the bridge not only accentuates the motion of pedestrians moving back and forth across the bridge but also create a gorgeous op-art effect that makes you feel as though you’re in the middle of a surreal stop motion animation.
