CoCA Belltown Gallery
On display through April 5, 2012
Miguel Edwards has created a site-specific piece called Penumbra, which is about the interplay of light: how it reflects, transitions, mixes, and transforms. This piece is a multi-layered installation of hand formed plastic sculptures which will reflect lights of various colors in carefully considered and very specific ways. The curves create transitions of tone and color from the multicolored LEDs shining and mixing on them. Lights from different angles fill in the shadows in other colors making graphic counterpoints to the objects themselves. These lightweight white sculptural elements are placed on mirrors resting on the floor and various elevated surfaces, as well as hung from a grid in the ceiling. Additional monitors, LED panels, edges of mirror, and various other evidence of the process and materials used draw the viewer in. This piece is dynamic and engaging day or night.
CoCA Belltown windows are 'open' 24/7. The site is located in Seattle, WA, US at 2721 First Avenue (First and Clay) on the Clay side of the building.
