From October 3 – December 5, Detroit based artist and designer took over the storefront of 210 S 1st St with four light sculptures that illuminated the windows with mesmerizing patterns.

Artist Statement:

I’m a light artist and designer exploring the intersection of technology and humanity, the relation between analog and digital systems, and the mechanisms of mesmerization. I use light to represent levels of actuation, and simple rules to generate emergent behavior. The result is a stream of continuously new pattern and textural information within a consistent data structure. I make physical objects because I value real-world experiences, real phenomena. Receiving light is a visceral experience which is able to impact us emotionally, and my aim is to pull on these strings.
