Mixed Media: Acrylic, stainless steel, copper, electronics and software
"The Light Chimes" (video) is a light sculpture for the Wingfield Park Ampitheater in downtown Reno, October 2017 thru March 2018.
Comprised of sixty 9-foot tall light chimes, suspended from the Wingfield Park Amphitheater ceiling structure, each of the ten software-driven light clusters consist of six light rods that use photographic images of Reno street murals, the artists own work, and time-lapse images of the Milky Way Galaxy to provide the source color palettes from which the color animations are derived.
"The Light Chimes" is produced with sponsorship from the City of Reno Arts and Culture Commission.
The Light Aquatic • 2014 - ongoing
Mixed Media: LED strips, PVC, electronics and software • 100' x 20'
A site-specific light sculpture for select underwater environments.
Photographs from various street murals in San Francisco's Mission and Tenderloin districts are the images sources that drive the underwater color animations. The intent was to experience the juxtaposition of urban color palettes in a rural environment, as well as the juxtaposition of submerged electrical elements.
To date, there have been four installations: The East Walker River in Yerington Nevada (Summer 2014), the Elk Creek in Elk Creek, California (Spring 2017), and two installations in the Truckee River in downtown Reno, Nevada (Autumn 2016 & 2017).
