The Astropuff is an exploration into the wonderful new possibilities of LED technology. The Astropuff fixtures are bright and colorful, changing in hue as you move around them. They make wonderful noise when you reshape them to your liking. They are light as a feather and are suspended singly and in groups. The Astropuff is a marvel of light only possible because of the advent of LED technology.
To create a signature sculptural lighting element to draw people from the street to the windows and then into the gallery to explore. The pieces were designed to be interacted with, squished and re-shaped by visitors to the space.
We were invited to introduce a series of pieces that functioned both to illuminate the raw space and create unique and differentiated sculptural expressions throughout the environment. Full range of creative expression was supported and encouraged by the gallery committee which allowed us to explore materials in a way that is distinct from most commission and custom projects.

[ 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.
