Bank of America Plaza

Preview Dates: February 16 – March 9 / 12-4 pm (Weekdays)

Presented by Arts Brookfield and Produced by Lerata

 

Presented as a part of SKYLINE, LUMIBOLIC creates relationships between site and visitor through interactive lighting effects derived from luminescent wire and curved surfaces. Motion and sound sensors extend outward from the artwork and are triggered by activity in the surrounding environment. The data from these sensors stimulate the lit wire in the structure, creating dynamic light patterns and visual vibrations. These patterns are inspired by the artwork of well-known Op-Artists Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely.

The artwork will be previewed in partial functionality February 16 through March 9 from 12-4 pm, Monday through Friday. The work officially goes on view to the public as part of SKYLINE from March 10-18. At this time in March, all components will be fully functional, allowing the viewer to directly impact the fluctuations in light patterns according to their interaction with the piece.

Architect Steve Lee will be on site during select hours to host interactive sessions with viewers and to answer any questions they may have. Musician Aaron Gilmartin will also be performing two acoustic guitar sessions near Lumibolic, demonstrating ways the sculpture interacts with sound. More information on the programming can be found below.

About the Exhibition:

SKYLINE is a free, ten-day, biannual architecture, art and technology event that showcases site specific, future-forward, interactive installations that embrace Los Angeles’ ever-evolving cultural landscape. During SKYLINE, architects, designers and artists transform historic, hidden spaces within downtown Los Angeles into a unique experiential event for visitors and locals alike.

As a presenting sponsor of SKYLINE, Arts Brookfield is featuring LUMIBOLIC in one of Brookfield’s premier buildings on Bunker Hill near The Broad and MOCA. In keeping with our mission to display cutting edge works of art in all disciplines to the general public, each project is interactive, site specific or adaptive, and utilizes technology in innovative ways that offers visitors unique and unexpected experiences in a non-art environment.

Uncovering the entirety of SKYLINE and it’s 10 city-wide installations via a self-guided walking discovery tour of downtown Los Angeles exemplifies the experience and allows viewers to tap into a different side of the city. Printed maps of the tour will be available at all installation locations and online at lerata.org. SKYLINE exhibition dates are March 10-19.
