Portrait and Interview by Tatijana Shoan
“There’s a certain Slant of light” is the first line of a poem of the same name written by American poet and writer Emily Dickinson back in 1861. The poem likens winter sunlight to cathedral music and considers the spiritual effects of the light. Light has been a theme throughout history for poets, writers and artists, and Peruvian-American artist has taken this theme to an experiential level. More than using light to illuminate her work, light is her main medium, which she controls through a complicated and intricate proprietary computer system that allows her to choreograph rays of light in various color hues to hypnotic music. This interdisciplinary artist is known for her large-scale light sculpture installations that incorporate elements from sculpture, video, drawings, printing and technology to create site-specific installations that engage architecture and captivate viewers. Amorós’ ephemeral and transcendent works reflect her Peruvian heritage and the communities where the artwork lives, and aims to bring communities
together and build a bridge between the past, present and future. Grimanesa Amorós
“LIGHT IS EPHEMERAL,
AND I LOVE THE FACT
THAT EVERY PERSON CAN
CONNECT TO IT—PEOPLE HAVE
A RELATIONSHIP AND
ATTACHMENT TO LIGHT.”
