Lightscapes

I’ve recently been awarded my first solo exhibition at the Young At Art Museum from 11/2018 to 4/2019! The objective of my project is to explore the progression of light and color theory in a manner that can be easily understood and exciting to explore for the youth in my community. “Lightscapes” would be comprised of three major light sculptures and a fabrication lab in a 3,000sqft gallery. The concepts of color theory, quantum physics through lighting and synesthesia as an audio-visual infused reality can be investigated by my audience in an immersive multi-sensory approach that is not only easily understood, but exciting, captivating, and thought-provoking. The concepts in question have been neglected, not many people really seek to understand why we see things the way we do or why our world appears the way it is. I want to be able to shed light on such an important yet seldom questioned part of our lives through mesmerizing optics, illusions, textures, and patterns that are meant to be examined and used in order to be understood. One of the featured light sculptures, Aqua, consists of over 70 custom acrylic elements and mirrors, creating a sweeping arrangement, embodying the theme of light and how it travels within reflections and perceptions. I would also like to make an adult-sized children’s mobile made of over 300 custom acrylic sculptures meant to be experienced at different angles. These different perceptions will be achieved with several different “viewing areas” that will allow for differences in lighting and filters to properly convey the vastness of possibility through light. The fabrication lab would bring the concepts of electricity, + and – wavelengths, light frequencies, and light theory into an interactive and immersive educational experience. The use of all of these audial, optical, and tactile senses will help create this neo-abstract reality within this space that will have the ability to translate different perceptions into our reality.
