Reflections is an interactive lighting installation which showcases the mirrored nature of the canal’s surface.
Reflections consists of two 14’x40’ suspended grids, each encompassing over 13 thousand individually addressable LEDs, all powered by an interactive video tracking system. Aluminum frames, each weighing only 400 pounds, allow this immersive piece to hover over the surface of the canal while creating generative patterns in real-time.
As the structures seemingly fade into the night, the reflections from the lighting sample previous artworks of the last ten years of Canal Convergence and color palettes from Scottsdale and the surrounding geography.
Reflections was commissioned by Scottsdale Arts for the 2022 edition of Canal Convergence.
