Multimedia Lighting Sculpture by Grimanesa Amorós
Aurora is a series of Mix Media Light Sculptures. I found it’s original inspiration from the natural phenomenon of what is known as the Northern Lights.
Light is one of my primary materials because it creates presence without physicality. In many occasions, it can be easily taken for granted, since much of what humans perceive comes from light, yet even that which is apparent can be mysterious. I’m always looking for the instance when light, in its changing forms, makes us contemplate and experience an ordinary circumstance in a different way.
tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE is the worldwide flagship store for Issey Miyake. It houses all the Miyake collections under one roof for the first time, principally the Issey Miyake women’s and men’s collections, Issey Miyake Fete, A-POC, HaaT, Me and Pleats Please. Located in the downtown Manhattan neighbourhood from which it takes it’s name, tribeca ISSEY MIYAKE is a uniquely modern boutique, set against the backdrop of a landmark cast-iron building. A titanium sculpture by Frank Gehry winds its way through the space that doubles as a creative venue of artist collaborations, exhibitions and events.
