Circus Family Installation featured in “Light” Expo at KANEKO

From Dec 5 – March 31, the Installation “TRIPH” will be part of the group exhibition “Light” at KANEKO in Nebraska

From December 5, 2017 through March 31. 2018, the Installation “TRIPH” by Circus Family will be part of the group exhibition “Light” at KANEKO in Nebraska.

This interactive installation consists of modular shapes containing programmable LED lights. The visualisation above consists of 2 shapes. Each shape is built with separate blocks. The shapes are made of wood, fabric and mirrors. Inside the interior of the shapes are controllable LED strips and sensors that measure movement.

The exhibition is FREE and OPEN to all public!

About the exhibition

“Light” is an interactive and visual art experience that explores art and science. Artists will employ glass, sculpture and light itself to showcase the sublime beauty that light evokes aesthetically and thematically. The public will glean insight into scientific issues such as vision and optics, physiology of light energy, sustainability, light pollution and conservation.

A large part of the exhibition is reliant on audience participation. Step inside an infinite abyss with Refik Anandol’s audiovisual installation. Interact and move through large geometric forms that change color, audio and intensity during an immersive light experience by Circus Family. Escape into a cocoon constructed of steel, wool, and found objects that absorbs you in a field of playable light by Taylor Dean Harris.
