Light Art Installations

The Borealis Light Arts Collective presents an exhibit of light installations inspired by the theme of Transformation. The work is featured in a self guided walking tour through the South Lake Union neighborhood. Projects come from a rich mix of creative communities including Visual Arts, Theatrical Arts, and Lighting Design.

The theme of transformation is interpreted broadly and navigates a wide mix of approach and concept.  Several of the works are interactive and meld the worlds of art and technology. Patchy Projects Paint Roller Remix is a magical approach that gives the viewer the power to shift imagery. Dark Design uses simple light technology to transform and meld the physical characteristics between two participant’s faces. Other work traverses Sparklab’s whimsical googly eyed trees to the nervous interaction of Sena Clara Crestón’s human scale flowers, to the challenging cultural imagery in David W. Halsell’s Caging the Colors. The walking tour includes Maja Petric’s installation at MadART (a Borealis Cultural Partner) and several Shunpike windows that feature lighting as an integral component in the work.
