Starry night

“The Star” by Jun Hao Ong in Butterworth, Malaysia paired with Diane Kordas’ Star Hoop diamond earrings.

A star is born in mainland Penang, Malaysia. Steel cables – aglow in more than 500 meters of LED lights – pierce through a four-story cement building, a celestial jax in an urban nocturne. “The Star” is the “low-tech materials meets high-tech application” work of Malaysian artist Jun Hao Oan for the 2015 Urban Xchange public art festival in Penang. With stars twinkling from treetops this time of year, this colossal intervention feels like a welcome expansion to the luminary lexicon.
