Danish town Horsens' sparkling city centre

Danish town Horsens' sparkling city centre

A Danish town called Horsens has put itself on the map with a real life Google map marker made of sequins, designed by Ornduvald.

The shimmering pin was designed as part of a project called Public Art Horsens, aimed at beautifying the city.

Rendered first on the computer, and then constructed from more than 10,000 multicoloured sequins, the pin is a nine-square-metre marker for the town’s centre.
