Exhibition Details

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center commissioned Jen Lewin’s traveling artwork, AQUEOUS a sequence of interactive LED platforms that form trails of light. During the day, the sculpture shifts in color and reflection, mirroring the sky. At night, AQUEOUS glows in full illuminated interactivity, engaging groups in an ever-changing landscape. 

Inspired by the symmetry in natural systems, AQUEOUS is one of the first pattern-based sculptures built at this scale. Composed of hundreds of interactive modular platforms derived from the Golden Ratio, the sculpture can be installed in multiple configurations. Each platform is controlled by code written by the artist, allowing them to sense human interaction individually, but also to link to each other to form interconnected pathways of light effects. 

AQUEOUS was designed and fabricated in 2017 at Lewin’s studio in Brooklyn, New York, and is part of her “Have Art, Will Travel” program.

AQUEOUS will be publicly exhibited at Stavros Niarchos Park starting December 1st, 2021 until January 6th, 2022 from hours 6am-8pm.
