POLY.lux is the latest installation created by SOFTLAB and curated by Nuit Blanche New York as part of Flash:Light 2011 along with the Festival of Ideas for the New City .
is an installation that hung within the entrance of st. patrick’s catholic school at the corner of prince and mott streets
in the busy metropolis.
The installation sculptural form was generated through a gravity driven process in which three funneling forms of varying depths hang downwards. the surface contains more than 1400 battery powered LEDs, installed onto the mylar panels which make up the form, flickering and blowing in the wind with the intention of slowing down traffic through the experience, engaging and encouraging visitors to co-mingle and interact with the work.
