The Asia Culture Center is hosting a multimedia art exhibit called the Hall of Night Light, that will illuminate Gwangju, South Korea with various interactive installations and projection-mapped light shows. For the month of October, The Pool by Jen Lewin will be on display as a part of the third stage of the exhibition, “Peace by Moonlight.” All visitors are welcome to the cultural complex for the free exhibition, open daily from 7:30-11pm, and can reserve a time to attend on the Asia Culture Center website.

The Pool was originally created in 2008 and since has been featured in 60 major installations worldwide. This interactive sculpture is a hallmark of Lewin’s work that seeks to create participatory public art experiences that transform the way we interact with art and each other through the shifting patterns and colors dynamically created in response to users’ play on the piece itself.

Social distancing and interaction are not mutually exclusive in Oklahoma City. Wear a mask as you wind your way through Campbell Art Park on Jen Lewin’s Aqueous, an interactive light installation open now to the public daily until 11pm, through October 19th. During the day, Aqueous’ surface reflects the sky, audience, and surrounding environment. At night, Aqueous engages visitors as they walk along its surface — lighting up as they step, run, jump or play along the pathway.

Jen Lewin combines her studies in engineering, computer programming, dance, music and film to create public artworks that engage the body and the senses. Her works have been featured at a variety of events, including the Istanbul Light Festival, Vivid Sydney 2014 and 2018, iLight Marina Bay, Signal Fest and Burning Man; art biennales in Denver, Colorado and Gwangju, South Korea; and solo exhibitions across the United States and in Mexico, Portugal and England. Lewin has designed and installed permanent public interactive sculptures worldwide, including the Sidewalk Harp in Minneapolis; Magical Harp in Palo Alto, Calif.; Promenade in Denver, Colo.; and Ascent in Coral Springs, Fla.

Burning Man, August 30 – September 6, is moving from playa to virtual Dusty Multiverse this year in response to COVID-19. Jen Lewin’s newest and largest work, Cosmos, was awarded a Black Rock City Honorarium to bring the mesmerizing sculpture to life and join The Mayan Warrior as a part of the largest live virtual art and music event in history. Free for all to join with RSVP at dustymultiverse.com, the experience is easily accessible on iOS and Android phones as well as VR headsets.

Comprised of spiraling LED pathways, Cosmos is a traveling, interactive light installation that has been coded to sense and respond to impact, vibration and movement. Spanning 15,000 sq. ft., Cosmos is the largest sculpture ever to be commissioned from Lewin’s studio and has been engineered to perfectly process human interaction. As viewers walk, dance, and play across Cosmos, they are able to generate an infinite amount of changes to its colors and reflections. Lewin’s work allows for an unprecedented level of interactivity and transforms the way we interact with art and each other.

Cosmos is part of Lewin’s “Have Art Will Travel Program” which seeks to create dynamic, participatory, public art experiences worldwide.
