Internationally renowned NYC based artist Jen Lewin will bring her interactive light landscape, The Pool, to Industry City. Built in 2008, The Pool invites visitors to walk, dance, jump and play along the field of concentric circles. By entering The Pool, you enter a world where play and collaborative movement create swirling effects of light and color. Imagine a giant canvas where you can paint and splash light collaboratively.
Inspired by Australian tidal pools, Lewin developed technology and code in order to bring this experience around the world. Using mesh-network technology and custom code, visitors can activate platforms that respond to touch—encouraging participation in an ever-changing composition.
The Pool is part of Lewin’s “Have Art, Will Travel” program, traveling to over sixty exhibition venues in more than twenty countries in the past thirteen years, including: Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Lisbon, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, Prague, Shanghai, Sydney, and Taipei.
The Pool will be at Industry City starting January 28, 2022 until March 28, 2022. The piece will be open from 3pm-9pm everyday in the courtyard between Buildings 1 & 2 and is free to the public.
