Overview

This piece is a modular interactive, experiential work. It modifies to different conditions depending on the site condition. As users touch the buttons in the center they create a myriad of light pattern throughout the piece.

Goals

I aspire to create work that unifies people in the experience of the art and each other. The goals are always the same in my work, intrigue people to come into the work, communicate with others and lower our guard to find a common place of interest and exploration.

Process

I pride myself as being able to do all aspects of the work I do, this piece was one of those situations where I made everything myself. But I love the process of collaborating with other designers, vendors, and specialists to create stronger results.

Additional Information

This piece is intended to celebrate curiosity and be e beacon for people to come and release the chaos of our lives and appreciate the subtleties of light and color.
