In this all-encompassing maze-like installation by Barbara Campisi, LEDs form colored lines of light when reflected off translucent ‘walls’, confounding any sense of orientation.

About

The viewers, as they walk inside the piece, complete it through their process of discovery.  During performances, dancers wearing lights move through and activate the light-based artwork, creating moving lines of light.   “A Sound Of Light, appearing around the bend” is in many ways inspired by a previous piece, entitled “The Cave”.

The artist explains that “'“The Cave” originated in a cave in Cappadocia, Turkey, during an artist residency at the Babayan Cultural Institute in 2012.  The feeling of scrambling through a disorienting maze of ancient caves during my morning walks translated into a maze of colored light. Villagers visiting this cave were delightfully disoriented, reacting spontaneously by interacting with their cell phone lights.”. At FiveMyles, “A Sound Of Light, appearing around the bend” will bring this experience, on a larger scale, to the New York public.
