Ursa Minor is a towering 12-foot-tall infinity mirrored bear by American contemporary artist Jen Lewin.The sculpture is free-standing and engages onlookers with its colorful flowing and interactive LED light choreography. Inspired by the dazzling natural phenomena of Polaris (the North Star) and its constellation Ursa Minor, the sculpture’s multi-paneled infinity mirrored body illuminates, conveying emotions of amazement, wonder, and exploration and reminding us to “Look Up”.
At Ursa Minor’s grand scale, it serves as a glowing compass and landmark for navigation as we maneuver through uncertain times. Jen Lewin brings us direct interaction with nature through her unique LED technology. Ursa Minor is one of two sculptures in a new body of work highlighting the natural world in our current moment of climate crisis. The work will premiere this September as part of The Last Ocean; an 800 square foot field of ice-like interactive platforms inspired by the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica.
