Light Tow­ers is a sensational and stunning new exhib­it at Sen­so­rio in Central Coast, California combining tourism with agriculture.

These breathtaking and magnificent  col­or­ful 6‑foot-tall tow­ers are  com­posed of more than 17,000 wine bot­tles, illu­mi­nat­ed with glow­ing optic fibers whose col­ors morph to a mov­ing musi­cal score.
