I Sky You

I Sky You 2009 with Maria Del Carmen Montoya, winners of the 2009 Rhizome commission competition

Seven clear glass dual-chamber forms containing a solution of Luminol in one chamber and a chemical reagent in the secondary chamber, hang over head. Drop by drop, the Luminol is released into the reagent chamber causing bursts of brilliant blue light that fill the otherwise dark room. The light triggers an array of photo-sensors which in turn activate a computer program producing a unique dissonant tone based on the particular luminescence of each droplet and lasting only as long as each flare of light. Visitors to the installation experience an imaginary sky blooming with color.
