LEDs, wireless controller, dichroic acrylic, high-density polyethylene, and custom electronics
Reflect is an immersive experience in which play activates swirling pools of color and light. During the day, dichroic film on the platforms mirror the sky, creating a surreal space in which the lines between the sculpture and the surrounding environment are blurred. Daytime visitors will experience a sensation as if they were swimming through clouds, while nighttime viewers will be met with a cosmic expanse of light. Inspired by organic patterns found in nature, Lewin developed platforms that contain vibration-sensing technology that changes color in response to touch—encouraging viewers to actively participate in an ever-changing composition. Uniting nature and technology, Reflect underscores the ripple effects that each individual has on their community and habitat, the energy of human connection, and the power of collective action.
Reflect is the newest work in Lewin’s “Have Art Will Travel Program,” which seeks to create dynamic, participatory, public art experiences worldwide. Lewin’s traveling works provide an unprecedented level of interactivity and can transform the way we interact with art and each other. It has also been exhibited as part of a larger installation titled Cosmos.
