Entry DescriptionConstellations is a dynamic and immersive artwork animated by flowing patterns and algorithmic formations of light and shadow. It is an iconic light sculpture that merges digital craft and cutting edge fabrication with data visualizations of abstract phenomena found in nature at a variety of scales. Constellations creates a theater-in-the-round that acts like a portal into an invisible world of dynamic visual poetry inspired by ideas of science, art and technology.
Constellations merges art and science, technology and experience, data and art. The artwork brings together people from divergent disciplines, to observe patterns of data, discuss and collaborate. Whether a musician seeing the rhythm of a score, a dancer studying a choreography, a computer scientist observing data patterns, or a meteorologist gazing at images of clouds; Constellations brings together otherwise siloed disciplines and people through the merge of art and technology through light.
