Crossing Disciplines - Light

September - November 2008

The Rubelle and Norman Schafler Gallery - Pratt Institute


The third exhibition in the “Crossing Disciplines” series, an ongoing series of faculty exhibitions that explores themes shared by artists and designers in multiple departments of Pratt Institute, featuring the work of Pratt faculty members across all departments. Work selected and curated by Artist Keith Sonnier.


“SteamLight - Adjustments”

We were selected to exhibit our installation An assembly of 7 of our SteamLight wallmount lamps in an L constructed out of the edge points of a 9 square grid. The lamps are all identical, and are rotated and tilted differently to explore the variety of light pattern and conditions possible in through such adjustments and see the spatial implications such adjustments may hold. We placed a vellum screen which acts as the canvas for a “light drawing” capturing only the texture the lamps create and the view of the light texture drawing rather than the object.
