Speaking of LEDs

6 Mar 2013


If you’re jonesing for some LED-based art projects but you did’t make it to San Francisco for the unveiling of Leo Villareal’s massive Bay Lights installation, you’re still in luck if you can get to El Paso this Thursday. As Glasstire reports …

On March 7, Douglas Steel, founder of the iE Collective, will be lecturing at UT El Paso’s Rubin Center on the use of LED lighting as “an artistic approach to studying the human brain,” pointing out how “overreliance on the scientific method” had hindered the development of new drugs to treat mental illness. He’s going to demonstate some new lighitng technologies that might be of use to artists.

Get all the event specifics at ArtReach website. The iE Collective also stages monthly light installations around the Sugarhouse Business District of Salt Lake City, UT as a part of the monthly Sugarhouse Art Walk.
