A Sound of Light, Appearing around the bend will be presented at Five Myles Gallery in Crown Heights, Brooklyn in September of 2018. Viewers will be invited to interact with the piece with handheld LED lights, and there will be performances, in which dancers will move about the piece, wearing LED lights, creating a moving cacophony of light. I am working with Hatchfund to raise production funds, so you can support the making of this piece, and enjoy some nice perks, by making a tax deductible donation here:
An all-encompassing maze-like environment in which LEDs form colored lines of light when reflected off translucent walls, confounding any sense of orientation. The viewers, simultaneously inside the piece, are invited to use hand-held LED lights to make their own moving light-lines. During performances, dancers wearing lights move throughout and further activate the artwork, creating their own moving lines of light. The installation will be presented at Five Myles Gallery in Crown Heights, Brooklyn in early 2019. It will be available for viewing during gallery hours, Thursdays through Sundays, 11-6, and collaborative dance events will be held on special evenings. Schedule to come.
