Istanbul Sky Light (1993) is a public art piece by American artist Thomas Sayre. Istanbul Sky Light contains eleven hanging fiberglass elements, each with its own system of randomly glowing interior lights. The project infuses a very tall, vertical lobby space with light and with leaf-like forms and organic shadow-play.
