Evoking the atmosphere of a research station of communications hub, light pulsates within mirrored cavities. The sculpture’s three-dimensionality continually dissolves and reappears as the geometric surface reacts to emitted light. The illuminated patterns are transmitted and distorted across the network, as the light bounces to create infinite spatial configurations. This collaborative project furthers ideas generated by Aranda\Lasch and Reas on their 2012 set design for Yeasayer.
