Luzes relacionais, 2010

Haze, video cameras, projectors, speakers, custom software system, people
“Luzes relacionais” uses light, sound, haze, and a custom-software system to create a morphing light-space in which viewers actively participate, manipulating it with their presence and movements. Created as a tribute to the work and artistic inquiry of Brazilian artist Lygia Clark (1920-1988), “Luzes relacionais” expands on Clark’s conception of the “organic line” and her inclusion of the viewing subject within the work of art. “Luzes relacionais” is a sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts. It is made possible, in part, with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts. Additional support has been provided by the generous grants from the Greenwall Foundation and the Experimental Television Center’s Finishing Funds program. The latter is supported by the Electronic Media and Film Program at the New York State Council on the Arts. Production Assistance: Josef Bull, Ryan Hale, Colin MacFayden, Sang Jun Yoo, Sinan Imre.
