Digital / Light, Sculpture

Lightwave is a twenty-five foot tall sculpture consisting of upward spirals that softly pulse with waves of colour. The intricate filigree waves sequentially glow revealing hidden patterns within the sculpture. The sculpture continually changes due to the ambient light that illuminates its panels. Solar LED lights create a nocturnal twinkling at the tip of the artwork. The sculpture is fitted with a microphone hidden inside a metal flower sculpture placed 15 feet away. The public is invited to speak into the flower and observe how the light show in the sculpture changes in response to the tonal qualities of sound.
