James Nizam produces subtle, geometric light installations with programmable lighting elements and mirrors, the resulting pieces looking like snapshots of a strictly choreographed laser light show.
Nizam has added color and moved his light sculptures outdoors, casting a blue triangle of light against a city at night in Visible Horizon and forming a blue and pink 16-sided form in Octagram. No matter the location, Nizam’s pieces give a visually physical presence to
the immateriality of light, building forms from literal smoke and mirrors.
