Recent Exterior Works
Ray, Chinatown – Boston, MA, 2013
This is a re-creation of “Ray” first done on the building of Howard Yezerski Gallery in 1998 on Newbury street.
The original piece was about 4o feet long and a single color, this version is 160 feet long and progressively moves through the rainbow — a vertical virtual rainbow-
This installation was sponsored by Nordblom. The lighting instrument is a Phillips Colorkinetics color reach fixture supplied by Creative Stage Lighting.
Collage, Back Bay Boston, MA First Night 2013
The First Night piece is eight two channel lines controlled by a time based cam action devise.
Sixteen ellipsodial projectors are controled by the device, projecting sixteen separate images onto the 60 by 220 foot side of the Hynes auditorium–the imagery is continuous and non interrupted.
The Eclipse Gallery in North Adams, MA, 2009
This piece was an installation on the exterior of the artist coop building that houses the gallery. I placed two 250 watt sodium vapor security lights on the parapet of the building—two at each end of the building. The lights were dusk to dawn. The duration of this piece was five weeks in the summer of 2009
The studio building is right next to a sluice way, so lots of mist is in the air, adding to the dramatic effect of the lights on the exterior of the building.
Located on Broadway in Cambridge just across the street from the new library. I was commissioned by the consulate to illuminate the building for the night of the official opening. The second floor is a ‘glass box’—that holds offices and conference rooms. Red is the official Swiss color—so I projected the logo of the Swiss Consul in the United States on the lower exterior of the building and turned the second floor into a red vitrine.
Weeks footbridge, Cambridge/Allston, MA 2009-10
The Weeks footbridge connects the main Harvard University campus to the Harvard Business School Campus in Allston, Massachusetts. In 2009-10 I worked with Luminus Devices of Sudbury, Mass to illuminate the bridge with LED projectors. The lights were installed in June, and were up for six months.
I was commissioned by the Harvard Business School to produce a series of permanent projections for their new Innovation Lab on Western Avenue. I used fourteen LED architectural spot lights modified to project images of text.
