Cosmos


Cosmos: 2020

Comprised of spiraling LED pathways, Cosmos is a traveling, interactive light installation that has been coded to sense and respond to impact, vibration and movement. Spanning 15,000 sq. ft., Cosmos is the largest sculpture ever to be commissioned from Lewin’s studio and has been engineered to perfectly process human interaction. As viewers walk, dance, and play across Cosmos, they are able to generate an infinite amount of changes to its colors and reflections. Lewin’s work allows for an unprecedented level of interactivity and transforms the way we interact with art and each other.

Cosmos is part of Lewin’s “Have Art Will Travel Program” which seeks to create dynamic, participatory, public art experiences worldwide.

Chandelier Harp: 2012-Current

The Chandelier Harp is an interactive instrument played by passing your body through the low voltage lasers that shine from the Chandelier Harp to the ground. Much like plucking the string of a harp, passing through the beams triggers custom circuitry and sensors to produce musical notes.  Designed for group, collaborative play, The Chandelier Harp allows participants to create, play, and dance music together.

The Chandelier Harp can install in one of two ways. It can be hung from the ceiling (as a free hanging chandelier), or it can be assembled on custom stands for stand-alone exterior placement.

The Chandelier Harp is part of 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 transforms the way we interact with art and each other.

Lewin’s Laser Harp Series is an evolution of immersive installations using movement and laser light to trigger sound. I have been creating light harps since the mid 1990′s. These harps have varied from art installations, stage and performance installations, and large outdoor sculptures

Euclid – 2019

Having spent time in Western Australia, the inspiration for Euclid comes from the mesmerizing reflections of Australian tidal pools. Euclid presents an expansive landscape of mirrored glass platforms that reflects the sky by day and transforms with the setting sun into a fully interactive work that illuminates the paths of people walking across its surface. A highly-customized computer control system created from Lewin’s custom components triggers more than 20,000 interactive light-emitting diodes (LEDs) into an elaborate and engaging light show. Lewin’s Euclid is displayed on the ground level of The SoNo Collection’s Southwest Plaza Entrance.

Brookfield Cloud – 2019

Inspired by Edison bulbs, The Cloud will be displayed on the third-floor marketplace of The SoNo Collection. The sculpture will dangle eight glass orbs pieced together with welded metal rings, 2,800 custom-made vintage glass bulbs and 8,400 interactive LEDs designed to mimic the clouds in the sky. The Cloud glows white, blue and purple in response to guests making their way through the walkway. By combining old fashioned handmade elements with an interactive system and infrared heat-map camera to track movements below, The Cloud creates an interactive experience where guests essentially control the clouds while enhancing the work’s beauty and form.

Ascent – 2018

Ascent is a permanent,  interactive light-based sculpture commissioned by The City of Coral Springs, and located in the Coral Spring Art Walk.

Ascent is derived from several mathematical and geometric principles creating nested, interactive platforms. During the day, its surface, shifting in color based on the viewer’s point of view, will softly reflect the environment. At night, user movement through the sculpture will be transformed into full glowing interactive light.

Ohio Flux


Flux Chandelier- 2017

Flux Chandelier is a custom, interactive, mesh network sculpture permanently installed at The University of Akron.

The sculpture is a series of four chandeliers throughout Zook Hall as part of the Ohio Arts Council’s Ohio’s Percent for Art program. The sculptures sense the height and movement of people as they pass underneath, which is reflected in the movement, patterns, and colors of the lighting throughout all four installations.
