“It is meant to honour and show appreciation for all those who have helped keep people alive, either by getting the vaccine to protect themselves and others, caring for those suffering from COVID or by assisting in the vaccination effort. We are all connected in this effort. After so much loss, uncertainty, and anxiety, may the light bring hope for a brighter future.”

Talking to CNN, Weiss said she was a retired nurse and had been asked by Boulder County Public Health to assist in vaccination. “I had noticed all these hundreds and hundreds of empty vaccine vials that were otherwise going to be wasted, and I thought they were just really beautiful and wanted to do something significant and meaningful with them.”

Weiss added that she wanted to do something with light since she felt that it had been a dark and challenging year for many. Netizens appreciated her creativity and were left mesmerised by its beauty.
