Exhibition Details

Jen Lewin Studio was excited to participate in the Gwangju Design Biennale, debuting the Long Harp in its first international exhibition. Part of Jen Lewin’s Laser Harp Series, Long Harp is an indoor, 60 string light sculpture designed for public play. These harps have varied from art installations, to stage, and performance installations and large outdoor sculptures. The Laser Harp Series is an evolution of immersive installations using movement and laser light to trigger sound.

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.
