GREEN WAVE™ is an energy efficient LED light and soundscape installation by which asks the scientific question “Can You Hear the Color Green?” with the visual form inspired by sound waves from the Kansas River with 110'L x 60'H x 1'D programmed lighting projected onto the Bowersock Power Company for the Lawrence Arts Center's Free State Festival. The forms and color correspond to the architecture and function of the site and highlight the currency of creativity and collaboration. We applied for a creative grant with Free State Festival as part of our KCAIC/NEA funded GREEN NOTE PROJECT™.
Lawrence Art Center's Free State Festival is an expansive week long event with Ideas, Film, Music and Art. White Art Studio applied to be included in the Visual Art aspect of the festival and was commissioned to produce a project. We highlighted the Bowersock Hydroelectric Mill as a historic part of Lawrence history recently renovated, long term energy conservation, small business development as well as the river itself.
We conceived, purchased lights and materials, project managed and collaborated with Free State and Bowersock Power Company staff to finalize details and times for the GREEN WAVE™ project. We worked with event specialist Phil Wente who helped with the initial set up and understanding of how to program the lights to achieve our desired goals.
The temporary installation was visible on Friday, June 26th and Saturday, June 27th 9:00 p.m. - 12 a.m. on the western facade of the Bowersock Mill from the 2nd Street bridge across from Lawrence City Hall. http://www.greennoteproject.com or http://freestatefestival.org/event/green-wave/126.

[ 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.
