Bright and Colorful

The holiday season at Newfields* is marked by the museum's presentation of Winterlights, a decorative light show using over a million-and-a-half lights to create displays. One of the few displays that can be enjoyed during daylight hours is this Christmas tree, made up of re-purposed little kids' toys.

My favorite part of the tree was the topper.

Made up of pool noodles, the topper reminds me of old Sputnik more than it does a star.

Again, this is a plastic tree, made up of children's toys that are very likely to be discarded not long after they are received. I think it serves as a prescient warning of how much waste we create.
