The Light Aquatic

The Light Aquatic (2014 - ongoing)

Mixed Media: LED strips, PVC, electronics and software • ~100' x ~20'

A site-specific underwater light sculpture where 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 the desert environment, as well as the juxtaposition of submerged electrical elements. The Light Aquatic is the first in the "Available Light" series of light sculptures that examine various juxtapositions, transformations, and superimpositions of images sources and environmental context, as rendered by each sculpture.

Installation by Scott Morgan and Jennifer Maire.
