Altered States of Light Vol 1 is an experiment in accelerating movement between the visible and the invisible. It takes the form of a room-sized device. Staged in a glazed street front at a busy intersection in Seoul, twenty-nine pillars of holographic matter are arranged into a labyrinth for light and visitors.
Hyundai Motor Studio is a multifunctional space with a coffee shop, library and exhibitions spaces. The main gallery area is surrounded by windows on the corner of a busy intersection in downtown Seoul. It was vital that the piece could live within this context and be informed and responsive to the presence of city life.
We worked in a small team as both artist and designers of the piece. Fabrication was done in both Canada and from a distance in Seoul.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
