The Rings of Time at the Sphere

The Rings of Time at the Sphere

Owned by Sphere Entertainment Co., the Sphere is a first of its kind immersive venue that engages the senses and transports fans and attendees to new worlds. The building’s atrium is home to a variety of interactives that make up part of “The Sphere Experience” and features The Rings of Time installation. The installation consists of two “strings” of rings spanning the 300’ long and 90’ high space, activating all levels of guest circulation.

Project Completion

September 2023


The state-of-the-art structure opened in September 2023 and consists of a 16K resolution LED exoskeleton and an interior performance area and theatre boasting 270-degree screens and over 18,000 seats. The Rings of Time is a tribute to human achievement, the advancement of technology, and the profound impact science has had on technology.
The Rings of Time installation in the atrium includes a dynamic LED light show that plays along 94 rings in varying sizes and features a key prop from Sphere’s first film Postcard From Earth directed by Darren Aronofsky.
The rings welcome guests arriving to see both the film and the most spectacular U2 concert you will ever experience!
