I've been seeing them for a month or so now and never thought much about them until right now. Does anybody know why they're there and what they do? The most information I could find is that they range from 90 feet to 120 feet tall and are illuminated at night.

They are art. They don't 'do' anything. You're supposed to just enjoy looking at them.

They are a public art exhibit by Olafur Eliasson. He basically creates massive art works with some type of environmentally sustainable aspect to them.
