Lighting Commissions

Client: Many
Project Date: 1998 – Current

Above are a few selections from the many hand made illuminated works by Jen Lewin over the years.  While different from her more known interactive sculptures, these illuminated forms were derived while Lewin was experimenting with form, light, and reflection.

Many of these forms have inspired Lewin’s larger interactive works such as  The Aurora, or The Cloud.

The Futo Chandelier is a private lighting commission for the Futo Winery. Handmade by Lewin in her  Boulder, Colorado studio, the lamp casts a unique light pattern from the LEDs installed in each glass bulb, transforming surrounding space.


Ceiling Element


Ceiling Element

Client: Que Bueno Suerte!
Location

The Ceiling Element by Jen Lewin was designed as both a light fixture and a mood generator. Videos, shapes, and colors project across the 40 foot long bar of “Session Kitchen” in Denver Colorado.  The colors, speed and projection are controlled by a custom tablet app giving the ability to manage the piece based on the time of day and vibe of the crowd.

The Revolving M’s

Client: Jen Lewin Studio
Project Date: 2013

The Revolving M’s are a playful series of classic American logobilia transformed through public interaction. Whether it be in commerce, effort or time, it’s undeniable that there are symbols that have become an unrecognizable part of life. The Ms allow participants to interact with some of these symbols without cultural pressure and reminds us that their real meaning lies in playful moments. Mounted on articulating arms, participants can impact and change these pieces to be playful, traditional, ironic, or nonsensical.

On Point

Client: Jen Lewin Studio
Project Date: 2013

On Point is a series of illuminated, rotating pointers.

Participants are invited to point and rotate the pointers as desired, allowing the audience to impact the art, changing the perceived impact. They appear to display different messages and emotional reactions when all three are pointed down, or up, or at the gallery attendant to the left. The artistic intention, however, remains the same – that by impacting the art you have more of a connection to your community than just being a passive observer.


Edison Cloud 2013

Edison Cloud

Client: Jen Lewin | Lumigeek
Project Date: 2013

Composed of 5000 hand welded metal rings, 3000 vintage Edison bulbs, 3000 hand glued white LEDS, 3000 custom cables and over 60 custom controllers, The Edison Cloud represents both an old-fashioned handmade and new mentality. By walking under and around The Edison Cloud you will see a ghostly and low resolution version of your shadow within the sculpture. This provides an experience where the movement of your body brings both beauty and form to glass and digital clouds.

Learning Gardens

Client: Jen Lewin Studio | Big Green | The Kitchen Community Foundation
Location

The Kitchen’s Learning garden beds were invented and designed by Jen Lewin as an educational tool to inspire spontaneous play by children and create an attractive outdoor classroom for teachers. Unlike simple garden beds, the Learning Gardens comprises modular beds with built-in irrigation systems that can be shaped in any configuration to fit small and large plots in virtually every schoolyard.
The garden’s feminine and organic lines contrast with the concrete and harsh lines of cities and inspires a natural reaction from students and teachers alike.

Learn more about the learning gardens and the vision created and enabled by Kimbal Musk and  Big Green , using these forms  to improve the health of students and communities by creating experiential learning and garden-based education opportunities in low-income schools.

The Studio Boulder

Client: The Studio Boulder | Jen Lewin
Location

For several years, working together and separately, Jen Lewin and Bill Goodrich carried a shared vision for a workspace that could allow for creative, focused work, but that would also provide the energy and inspiration of a community of other dedicated, passionate people.  After years of working with a small team from her home studio, Jen needed to grow and spread out.  With that impetus, she and Bill partnered to create The Studio (Boulder) as both a new home for Jen Lewin Studio and as a space for a wide range of other creative entrepreneurs, freelancers, and professionals.  Since opening the doors to The Studio on January 1, 2014 the space has grown into one of the most vibrant and dynamic professional communities in Boulder.
