These bright objects that seemingly glow by the roadside, not only relieve the monotony of the highway landscape, but do so using topographic maps of the area that have been digitized, assigning different colors to the varying altitudes of that specific location. The results are cheerful, abstract-looking patterned façades that would deter the best of graffiti artists.
