Someone in the KHH City Gov’t is a shining example of ‘good intentions not well-thought out.’

The art installation known as the Dome Of Light (At Formosa Boulevard MRT Station), is one of Kaohsiung’s most famous tourist sites and is particularly popular with Japanese visitors.

It took Italian artist Narcissus Quagliata, pictured below, four years to create and cost NT$80 million.

So why dim this masterpiece? Power saving … which is good … but in this case, it may not have been the brightest idea.

Check out this report from the Taiwan News:

“Kaohsiung residents and tourists have complained recently that Formosa Boulevard MRT Station’s “Dome of Light” (光之穹頂), which was recently listed as one of the top 10 attractions in Taiwan by international travel websites, seems to have gotten a lot dimmer lately.”
