Ron Arad 720° art installation in Jerusalem (10 images)
Visitors watch videos on a monumental installation by Israeli designer Ron Arad, called 720°—an immersive experience that presents 360-degree screenings of film and video art at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, August 16, 2012. The installation is made of 5,600 silicon rods suspended from a height of 26 feet (8 meters) to form a perfect circle. 720° will allow visitors to experience projections both inside the installation’s interior and also from various vantage points across the museum grounds.
