As seen above, the Urban Array does not seem incredibly special or noticeable since it is in broad daylight. However, as other photographers would show, the Urban Lights are truly magnificent in the evening.
The purpose of visting LACMA was to understand and grasp the concept of mathematics and art. Sure, in the lectures, Dr. Vesna mentioned points such as the golden ratio, but I felt like I had to see something more concrete. In this case, the Urban Lights showed an understanding of geometry, symmetry, and even concepts in physics to create such an artistic masterpiece. Not only were the poles perfectly aligned, but the wavelength of the light used and the different pole heights created an unique lighting effect that made the Urban Lights an iconic LA tourist attraction.

Thus, for those of you who haven't yet visited LACMA, I highly encourage you to check out the Urban Lights! Aside from amazing Instagram photos, students can also enjoy/appreciate the utilization of mathematics to create such a perfect artistic piece.
